Wayne Coyne and those other two freaky freeformers are lighting a Pyre to the Supreme Being of No-Pain and Light with their first-ever live DVD, called U.F.O.s at the Zoo: The Legendary Concert in Oklahoma City, and if the stars align and the planet we call Home keeps turning and churning and giving the illusion that the Sun has left us when really it's just saying Hello to the rest of the world and will be back soon to shower us in more Tenderness and Secular Renewal, the DVD will be coming out sometime (Time?) in July. Starting April 6, the band will be selling Limited Edition posters through their store, which is so fitting, because given enough time, everything ultimately comes in a Limited Edition, even our own corporeal forms.
The Flaming Lips also have some seriously Eldritch tour dates coming up in Far Off, Far Out places like Myrtle Beach and Pompano Beach. Coyne explained, "When the records come out, we hit everywhere as quick as we can to be out on the circuit. The second summer, you try to go to all the weird, cool places where you want to shop and eat exotic food." This is just a guess, but I bet when they play at Brown University, everyone will be throwing around Giant Balloons of Mellifluousness and then Robert Coover will get up on stage and give a speech about the possibilities of the Digital Medium to advance Metafiction and Art, and then Brian Evenson will get up on stage in a Rabbit costume and warn against the Dangers of Mormonism, and then Wayne Coyne will take back the microphone and launch into "The Supreme Being Teaches Spider-Man How To Be In Love," which will be on the soundtrack to Spider-Man 3, and then the whole crowd will form a Human Spiral that looks like it spirals into Nothingness but really, at the very center will be The Answer To The Question and that Answer will Level all Buildings and Heal all Wounds and pluck the Final Guitar String.
See you there:
