WASHINGTON D.C. (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Mother Nature wasn't feeling very kindly towards the the Washington D.C. edition of the Green Apple Festival, held on the National Mall on April 20th and the event was called off mid-show after rain and thunder storms drove the audience into nearby museums.
According to a local music blogger, both The Roots, and Gov't Mule were slated to perform but no where to be seen. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid also passed on an appearance at the event and New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman got a chilly reception from the crowd and was guided off stage by Chevy Chase to a rousing course of jeers.
Other performers at the event included O.A.R., with a special acoustic kickoff set, Toots & The Maytals, Mambo Sauce and The Thievery Corporation, who never made it to the stage due to the rain.
Similar events were held in other places around the nation over the weekend with shows New York, Miami, Chicago, Denver, Dallas, L.A. and San Fran.
The event was organized by The Earthday Network with the generous support of Chase. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
