The Flaming Lips Announce Live Shows

wants you! Posted by Hello

The Flaming Lips have announced two new live shows, or as they would call them, "extravaganzas." The official website states, "Don't miss it, and don't forget to bring yer glove puppets, furry suits, fake blood and a big smile..." Most likely, a smile will suffice, as Wayne and his psychedelic bandmates will be sure to provide plenty of eye-catching costumes and props in their stage shows. The first show will be a performance at the 9th annual All Good Festival at Marvin's Mountaintop in Masontown, WV from Jul. 15-17. They will be co-headlining the festival with fellow Oklahomans and improvisational rockers The String Cheese Incident.

The Lips will also be performing in the Xingolati Festival aboard the Carnival Cruise Lines' ship Paradise as makes its way from Los Angeles to Ensenada, Mexico from Oct. 14-17. The lineup includes an eclectic mix of "groovy" artists, including G. Love and Special Sauce, Medeski Martin and Wood, and John Popper Project featuring DJ Logic. The highlight of the cruise ship tour will be the Lips' headline set in the ship's main auditorium as well as a screening of their recent biographical DVD, The Fearless Freaks, and the first-ever 'Pacific Ocean Zaireeka Party,' a playback of their 1997 four-disc album that requires four different CD players to play properly.
