Al Gore's 'Live Earth' To Feature Crappy D.C. Component
In retaliation for Washington's refusal of the main "Live Earth" concert, Al Gore has threatened the District with an 11-hour concert by Trisha Yearwood, who was apparently a popular Nashville singer in the early 1990s.
Logistics as to who is performing at the D.C. event were still being worked out, with Trisha Yearwood mentioned as one of the artists. The D.C. concert is tentatively set to begin at 10:30 a.m., and proceed through 9:30 p.m.
Gore himself will briefly stop by the mystery D.C. thing tomorrow morning -- which will be held outside the National Museum of the American Indian -- and then travel by 100-mph Prius to the real Live Earth concert in New Jersey.
