Google Rich Snippets Showing 3rd Party Results

A WebmasterWorld thread has someone noticing that Google is showing rich snippets under a site but those rich snippets are coming from a different set of sites, not from the listed site's source code. The search result is for [coldplay ], a popular band. The result loads their home page and then what appears to be event rich snippets below the search listing.
