Over the last few weeks, the Foo Fighters have been excavating America's storied musical past on their HBO series "Sonic Highways," which documents the making of their new album of the same name. Now, they're bringing some of their biggest influences together to celebrate the band's 20th anniversary, as well as Independence Day in -- where else? -- Washington D.C. Dave Grohl and co's "Sonic Highways" will all converge on the capital city for a Fourth of July bash featuring big names from disparate musical genres, as well as a few extra-musical amusements.  The show will take place at Washington D.C.'s massive Rfk Stadium and feature performances by Chicago blues legend Buddy Guy, Seattle classic rockers Heart, NYC rapper LL Cool J (backed by Phoenix native Z-Trip), proto-riot grrl Joan Jett, Austin guitar maestro Gary Clark, Jr., D.C.'s go-go kingpins Trouble Funk, New Orleans icon Trombone Shorty. »
