Whoa, you guys, is it the future already? This coming Sunday, local freestyle country ensemble Lambchop will be playing live on the Internet -- in 3-D.

Lambchop will be playing LIVE in Videoranch3D on Sunday March 21st, at 8:00 PM Central Time. The show is part of the Global Zone Music Festival happening live in 3D and brought to you by Videoranch3D. Other performances throughout the week include A Fine Frenzy, Asleep at the Wheel, Lal Meri, and many others.

Now, I've never used Videoranch3D, but apparently it's a "3D virtual world on the internet, where LIVE musical performances occur in real-time, attended by a virtual audience from all over the world." Kind of like Second Life, I suppose, only less so? At any rate, this show is free, and starts at 8 p.m.

In order to "attend," you're gonna need a high-speed connection (naturally) and a computer running Windows (oh noes!). If I understand this right, Mac users can watch the live feed of the show but can't have an avatar in the audience. Score one for John Hodgman!

Full festival lineup is here. And don't forget: "Once inside Videoranch3D, you can move around, dance, cheer, see, chat with and meet other members of the audience." In other words, you can blah blah blah all the way through the set and then pretend you were really into it afterward -- just like at a real show!
