Coyne & Co., and
maybe Santa Claus too, conquer Mars and institute “Mars Day”…
By Fred Mills
Unless you’ve been under a rock you’ve probably heard that
the Flaming Lips will headline the official U.S. Earth Day celebration on
Sunday, April 19, at the mall in Washington
DC. The theme? It’s to be – hold
on, you know it’s coming – “The Green Generation.” Which we suspect suits Wayne just fine.
Ten other cities will be holding their own bashes (over 200k
turned out last year, which actually is not that much if you think about –
c’mon people, get off your collective duff).
Also on the bill: Los Lobos, moe., DJ Spooky, plus the
Howard University Drummers (maybe we’ll have a Lips-Drummers mashup like that
cool Radiohead deal with the USC Trojan Marching Band awhile back…) and the
Joy Of Motion Dance Center teen hip-hop
corps, Urban Impact. No less than Chevy Chase
will be the MC for the event.
