    In an eclectic showing, singer/songwriter/guitarist/bad boyfriend John Mayer, Motown crooner Smokey Robinson, saxophonist Branford Marsalis and opera singer Harolyn Blackwell will join the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. for a free concert that is currently scheduled for July 20. The evening will celebrate the end of Kennedy Center President Michael M. Kaiser's cross-country fact-finding mission to visit arts and music programs. I am not sure what Kaiser's mission entailed, but let's hope the end result is the arts being fostered by the government and in schools and hopefully this concert will remind politicos why the arts are so god damn important.

    Who would you like to see perform with Mayer, Robinson and co?
