A small crowd of locals can now argue they’re just one degree from Kevin Bacon.
Bacon — along with brother Michael — played a surprise pop-up concert in the Girard Children’s Community Garden on Saturday.
The Bacon brothers played several songs and chatted with members of the public and volunteers from City Blossoms, a local non-profit dedicated to using food and art to develop green garden spaces.
Naturally, several people in attendance took to Twitter to show their appreciation.

UPDATE at 7:30 p.m.: Am I the only one who doesn’t see the concert on HBO (Comcast channel 3)?
UPDATE at 3:53 p.m.: Well, COMCAST is not providing HBO’s live feed of the concert for free. It was my mistaken understanding they would do so. Hope they show it at 7 tonight. But, the live online feed at HBO.com was great.
If you are heading down to the Inaugural Concert at the Lincoln Memorial, here’s some info from the D.C. Government’s official Inauguration 2009 Web site (below).
Actually, you don’t have to schlep to the Lincoln Memorial because HBO is televising the concert for all cable viewers–you don’t have to be an HBO subscriber. Watch ““We Are One: Opening Inaugural Celebration at the Lincoln Memorial” live on HBO at 2:30 p.m. or at 7 p.m. tonight.
The line up of mega-stars includes Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, Bono/U2 and Stevie Wonder. The rest of the lineup is just about as impressive.
