Found this article through the Crawdaddy web site. I love when the Ticketmaster weasel won't answer the reporter's questions about the ticket fees.

The Green Apple Music Festival for Earth Day will be in DC this year (and seven other cities) on the National Mall. Date is April 20 and its free. Bands include The Roots & Friends, Gov’t Mule, Toots and the Maytals, Thievery Corp - DJ set, Warren Haynes, Umphreys McGee, DC Boys Choir, and City Dance .

A true test of whether the National Theater will be able to draw soccer moms from the West End into the wild and wooly downtown: Kenny G will play there on Sunday, June 8.
