The Flaming Lips is said to be in the midst of recording a double disc album, set to be released in September. (via BBC – 6)
To celebrate, a wee clip from their Vancouver 2007 show (also known as the night I became a woman).
p.s. I was under that giant ball at one point…just saying
Ever have those days when nothing really goes wrong, but it seems that nothing really good is happening either? A greyish-white could of uncertainty just hangs there, above everything you do and happens to you during the day.
That has been this past week for this lady.
Which is why I am hypothetically pumped to hear that NEIL YOUNG is playing here in Lethbridge, April 25th but cannot seem to work up the actual level of excitement this announcement deserves. Either way, for real folks, Neil Young, in Lethbridge. Do a couple handsprings for me would ya? The urge to see him live has only intensified for me after watching Rust Never Sleeps, so unlike Fleetwood Mac (which is minus Christine McVie and therefore minus this girl, plus the ticket price is a little steep…like mt. Everest steep) I will be shelling out some bucks to see this. An unexpected announcement which has some people wondering why. My hypothesis is that Bobby D. told Young how sweet this audience is sometime while he was lurking outside his supposed residence.

Lastly, a prep for Sasquatch, Black Moth Super Rainbow. Saw these guys open for The Flaming Lips September 2007 and they were pretty killer. A must see on my list. The synth….The synth!
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.
