Default Flickering Dash Warning Lights ??

I did a search about the flickering lights thing and found stuff about a failing alternator.
But, mine is acting a bit differently than the scenarios described. Coming home form work today and glanced down at the dash as I was merging onto the interstate to see all the warning (idiot) lights flickering. Rapped the face of the instrument cluster with my finger and they all went out (except for the SES light which the ongoing EVAP code is keeping on). Car is starting and running fine, hasn't done it again. Got home, shut the car off, started it again, everything as normal.
Question is.. What just happened there?
Another note, been a couple times the dash lights themselves don't come on when I turn the headlights on, no flickering, just black dash. Next morning they came right on and worked great. Thought I'd throw that out there in case the two things could be related.
