Live Earth Comes to Arlington

UPDATE: My review of Live Earth at Giants Stadium is up at The Green Miles

The Green Miles will be packing up the Purple Car tomorrow and driving up to New Jersey for the Live Earth climate change awareness concert at Giants Stadium.

But it turns out you don't have to leave Arlington to get the Live Earth experience! The venerable Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse will be hosting a live broadcast of the concert. You can buy tickets at the Drafthouse's website.
