FLASH! AAAAAaaaaAAAAH! He'll save every one of us!
As the Perseid Meteor Shower is illuminating our night skies through the early morning hours, remember - any one of those harmless-seeming little chunks of space rock could actually be the first wave in an attack on earth from outer space!! And if one of those meteors is lunar debris after a certain Ming the Merciless knocks our moon out of orbit with force beams, our entire planet will only have one hope - that a professional football player will crash into a Russian's lab and end up taking a trip on his rocket ship to the planet Mongo. And, of course, music by Queen would need to follow him up there to set the mood.
Seeing as how that *probably* won't happen tonight, though, we'll have to settle for the next best thing - FLASH GORDON on the lawn of the Long Center with a pre-movie serenade from Magnifico, the best Queen cover band you'll ever experience! Check out the crowd at their recent performance at the Fusebox Festival for proof:
