Video Fridays: Crazy Collaboration

Well, here’s something you don’t see every day.

If someone was to tell me that veteran singer/songwriter Jackson Browne was going to perform at a Woody Guthrie tribute concert, nothing about this news would be surprising.

After all, Jackson Browne clearly followed in the Guthrie tradition, combining passionate songwriting with equally passionate progressive activism.

Now, if that same person was to tell me that Jackson Browne would be performing at a Woody Guthrie tribute concert, sharing the stage with Wayne Coyne, the frontman of those psychedelic freaks known as The Flaming Lips, and both would be playing acoustic guitars, well, I’d be pretty stunned, and I’d certainly think of it as an exceedingly unlikely collaboration.

But, if I was told that Jackson Browne was going to perform at a Woody Guthrie tribute concert, with Wayne Coyne AND the other four Lips members, who, instead of playing their normal guitars, keyboards, bass and drums, would all be playing…wait for it…iPads, well, I’d have to say that the person telling me this was all kinds of crazy!

And yet, via Paste (via The Future Heart), that’s exactly.what.happened.

Ladies & Gentlemen, prepare yourself for the crazy!
