Red Hot Chili Peppers are as California as sunshine and surfing, so of course they were a natural choice to close out Sunday night on the big field. Anthony Kiedis and Co. certainly weren't expecting that field to contain several thousand refugees from a sandstorm ("I feel like I'm in Lawrence of Arabia," the frontman observed. "I feel like I'm in the dust bowl with Woody Guthrie," Flea added). But as far as the RHCPs were concerned, they were in the middle of the Santa Monica pier. Flea emerged shirtless despite the chilly night; before long, Kiedis had shed his jacket, shirt, and Off! cap, too. There was funk and there were drum solos, but above all, there were hits — the band opted against a set of deep cuts in favor of playing every song in their repertoire that vaguely referenced their home state. So we got "Dani California" and "Californication" and lots of chances for the bros in the crowd to throw their hands up and group hug. What wasn't lost in the less-than-ideal conditions: the fact that this remarkably resilient group features a pair of 50-something dudes who can still jump higher than Woody Harrelson.
