It will take a traffic jam of millions to hold them back: Tomorrow night, hip-hip icons Public Enemy will perform in the streets of Foggy Bottom, rapping on a flatbed truck en route to a headlining concert at Lisner Auditorium.

It's an effort to promote National Homeless Youth Awareness month and the reunited rap group, featuring Chuck D and Flava Flav, will be touring the Sasha Bruce House in Southeast Washington earlier in the evening.

Around 7:45 p.m., they'll arrive in Foggy Bottom to bring the noise. At the concert, fans who donate a new or gently used winter coat will be eligible for a free VIP ticket upgrade with all proceeds from concert's ticket sales benefiting the Sasha Bruce House.

The truck is set to arrive in Foggy Bottom at the intersection of 18th and G Streets N.W. and will head west on G Street, take a right on 22nd Street, another right onto I Street, and a final right onto 21st Street, until they reach the steps of Lisner Auditorium. Organizers expect the group to squeeze two or three songs out of the appearance, depending on traffic.
