Wayne will probably be naked and have tubs attached to his junk and singing into a baby's mouth when I see them (The Flaming Lips) in July.

They're selling Wayne's comic "The Sun is Sick" at their shows.

I somehow ended up standing in between my best friend from elementary school and my best friend from jr. high. I didn't know either would be there. That was pretty awesome. Some guy next to us was smoking weed like his life depended on it. There were a lot of pretty colors, confetti, and glow sticks. The crowd was actually paying attention to the show, and Wayne seemed to absolutely love it.

I have no clue what their setlists have been like, but aside from The Terror songs (which were fantastic live), we also got The W.A.N.D., Silver Trembling Hands, Spoonful Weighs a Ton, All We Have Is Now, and Do You Realize?. I'm probably forgetting something else, I'll try to post a setlist when one is up. They could be playing all of those every night for all I know, but I wasn't really expecting any of them (aside from Realize), and they were all awesome.

Fun night, fun show. Seeing them for the first time in an outdoor, "almost free", setting like that wasn't disappointing in the least. I can only pray to mighty Cthulhu that the crowd gives the next two weeks of shows the same attention and response.

Just remembered I still haven't heard The Terror.

Guess that shows how high of a priority it was for me.

Give it a few spins when you're in a shitty mood. Definitely one of the better albums of the year, and bold as hell.

Glad you had fun at the show, Scumbo. Glad to hear their shows are still fun.

Seeing as how I didn't love Embryonic like most of the other people here, Im no going in with very high expectations.

This was pretty much the set, I believe:

 
Look...The Sun Is Rising
The Terror
The W.A.N.D.
Virgo Self-Esteem Broadcast
Silver Trembling Hands
Try to Explain
Race for the Prize
Butterfly, How Long It Takes to Die
All We Have Is Now
Gates of Steel (DEVO cover)
Turning Violent
A Spoonful Weighs a Ton

Encore:
Do You Realize??
Always There, In Our Hearts

This is out soon. New EP "Peace Sword" released for this Ender's Game movie.

So to hell with the writer's fucked up views of course and listen to the music on it's own merit. It's currently streaming at a number of sites but Consequence Of Sound has compiled them onto one page and a series of nice Soundcloud links.

Stream The Flaming Lips’ new EP, Peace Sword | Consequence of Sound



01. Peace Sword (Open Your Heart)
02. If They Move, Shoot ‘Em
03. Is The Black At The End Good
04. Think Like A Machine, Not A Boy
05. Wolf Children
06. Assassin Beetle – The Dream Is Ending


First listen, pretty damn good, perhaps more melodic and accessible on first listen then The Terror with some nice instrumental passages ala 7SKIESH3. Just now it looks like a purely digital only mainstream issue, then a CD/Vinyl Black Friday Record Store Day release Nov 29th.

I love this band. Two very different, VERY good releases in one year.
