This Thursday December 18th at 7PM CKXU will be presenting a special screening of The Flaming Lips movie “Christmas On Mars” at Galileos in the SU!
If you’re a Lips fan, you have likely seen the 2005 doc Fearless Freaks and been salivating for Christmas on Mars ever since. In the making since 2001, this holiday special has been long awaited by Lips fans and movie freaks alike. Premiered at the 2008 SXSW and making its way across the nation, I have missed every chance to see this doc on a big screen and now CKXU is making it happen!
Tell all your friends and bring some guests. Admission is Free! Plus CKXU will be giving away some wicked cool Flaming Lips merch.
Check out this official trailer:

This show is dedicated to the lovely and oh-so-elusive Sasquatch…
