QUICK TAKES

Why not call it Lollapa-fuelza?

June 17, 2004|Susan Carpenter

Alternative energy rocks. That's the message Perry Farrell hopes to send during this year's Lollapalooza concert in New York, which will be powered entirely by solar, bio-diesel and hydrogen fuel cells.

In addition to hearing such acts as Morrissey, PJ Harvey and the Flaming Lips, audiences at other stops on the tour will have the chance to play alternatively fueled musical instruments and to learn about renewable energy.

"I felt like I needed to ... help turn our country and the world toward clean energy," Farrell said in a statement. "I know I can convince them, because hydrogen is sexy as a rocket ship and sweet as the sun."
