Do You Realize the Flaming Lips Are Playing a Free Show on Sunday??

By David Malitz

For a long time we've known there was going to be a free Earth Day on the National Mall concert on Sunday. We just didn't know who was going to play. I assumed it'd be a lot of hippie nonsense, but it's just a little bit of hippie nonsense. And it's actually pretty awesome -- psychedelic superstars the Flaming Lips will be the headliners, with guitar noodlers moe., Tex-Mex stalwarts Los Lobos and the always-forward-thinking DJ Spooky also on the bill. Let's just hope it doesn't get washed out like last year's concert did.

There are no details on order, schedule or anything like that, and don't expect it to be forthcoming any time soon. If it took the organizers until five days before the show to confirm who was playing, you have to think the rest of the details are going to emerge slowly. But still -- free Flaming Lips!
