At the recent Cranberries show on the Mall, thousands of hooky-playing kids nearly rioted: Police pulled the plug before Dolores “Even More Annoying Than Sinéad” O’Riordan got the chance to hyperventilate her anti-war anthem (“wid der tanks ‘n’ der guns ‘n’ der guns ‘n’ der bumbs…”), “Zombie.” But there shouldn’t be any trouble finding a spot on the lawn near the Washington Monument for the “Family Night on the Mall with Oldies 100,” where the featured performers include former Herman’s Hermits frontman Peter Noone and erstwhile Ronette Ronnie Spector. At 6 p.m. at the Sylvan Theater on the Washington Monument Grounds. FREE. (202) 619-7222. (ED)
