Flaming Lips Kick Off New Tour


The Flaming LipsThe Flaming Lips, formed in Oklahoma City in 1983, are this week’s featured artist on eventseeker. Their rock music and shows are known the world over, featuring a mix of multi-layered arrangements, with psychedelic undertones. Their live concerts involve elaborate costumes, confetti, balloons, and a human-sized bubble that the lead singer, Wayne Coyne, gets inside through the crowd. The UK magazine Q named the Flaming Lips one of the “50 Bands to See Before You Die.” Their latest album, The Terror will be released on April 1 in Europe, and April 2 in the US.

This week, the Flaming Lips are kicking off their 2013 tour dates by playing at SXSW. In case you can’t make it to The Warner Sound Showcase on March 14, watch the live stream here: http://youtube.com/thewarnersound
