Last night's free Artists for Action Voter Registration Concert and Rally at the Marquee Theatre in Phoenix featured local acts including Calexico, Sergio Mendoza y la Orkesta, Salvador Duran and Miniature Tigers. The 1,500 people that showed up signed pledges to vote Nov. 2 and new voters registered at the door before jamming out.

We've got more photos and some songs for you after the jump!

Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry Goddard made a surprise appearance on the stage. Hear his get out the vote speech here -
