A Little Live Earth for D.C.
It won't be quite the spectacle as originally planned, but there will be a Live Earth event on the National Mall tomorrow. As reported earlier this morning by J. Freedom du Lac, a mini-Live Earth concert will take place tomorrow at the National Museum of the American Indian, featuring remarks from former Vice President Al Gore and performances by country superstars Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood. The Mother Earth event will also feature many performances by Native American acts, and will last from 10:30 a.m. to roughly 10 p.m. If you want to see the superstars, you'll have to wake up early -- Gore, Brooks and Yearwood are all expected to hit the stage between 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. (On a side note, with Tim McGraw and Faith Hill in town for their show at Verizon Center, there will be almost too much country starpower for one city to handle.)
The Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse will be hosting a six-hour broadcast of Live Earth concert feeds from around the world from 5 to 11 p.m. on Saturday night. This is your chance to catch performances by artists such as the Police, Dave Matthews Band, Foo Fighters, Alicia Keys and more. Admission is $4 and the event is sponsored by Defenders of Wildlife.
