    Default The Flaming Lips in 09?

    Sorry if there's already a thread on this. I couldn't find one though!

    So what do you guys think? I've been really getting into them again since they recently premiered Christmas on Mars in LA.

    I saw them back at the Hollywood Bowl in like 05 or 06. It was for that KCRW thing. It was an amazing show. & I'm sure everyone's seen the Coachella footage.

    So what do you say guys? Yay or Nay for Flaming Lips in 09?

    It's definitely been long enough, (since 2004, which is five whole years). Wayne is a festival whore. Coachella is one of the best festivals in the country.

    They're new record is currently in the works and is looking like a June 2009 release.

    It makes way too much sense!

    The only thing that stops them is that they're scheduled to record in March... I'm not sure how long they usually spend in the studio, but, it's possible their time could leak over into April. I hope not.

    Good to hear such great news!

    They would be so great in a tent even though the only one that's even anywhere near big enough for them is the Sahara, and obviously their music doesn't fit in there!

    FLips headlining Friday would not only be awesome, but would set a ridiculous bar for anyone performing Saturday and Sunday.

    I'd camp out at the main stage for a while to get up close for the Flaming Lips.

    They've been quiet for awhile now. It's aggravating cause that could easily either mean they won't come or they will make a grand return. I can't predict this one at all.

    Just make sure Wayne leaves that fucking plastic ball at home, so we can get a whole set not just 4 fucking songs.

    I'm not bitter.

    How about leave the bubble, the hulk fists, the puppets, the dancing anmials, the waterfalls, the volcanoes, rainbows, unicorns, shooting stars, ufos, balls, dragons, confetti, lasers and everything else at home too, and just put on a good show of them playing some good songs...like the good ol' days.

    So, do away with everything that makes their live show so unique and wonderful? The Flaming Lips have never been minimalists, at any stage in their careers.

    This man was at Sasquatch. He knows what he is talking about. The Flaming Lips UFO Show ARE headliners.

    They have perfected the art of the plastic ball. I have seen them tiwce this year, and it only takes up a small portion of the show.

    The Flaming Lips music is great... but their live show puts them over the top.

    they would only headline if it were a UFO Show. I've seen them a couple of times...but only seen the UFO show once....at Bonnaroo 2007.

    I live in Bonnaroo country....and around here that show is to Bonnaroo what Daft Punk 06 is to Coachella.

    I'm just not a big fan of stage shows and all that extra stuff...I find it all unnecessary.

    I guess that is where we differ. If the bands music permits it, I love elaborate stage shows. The Flaming Lips music definately permits all the extra stuff on stage.
    I like listening to The Flaming Lips music and all. I love their CDs. However their live show is SO much fun and SO good, due too all the extra stuff.

    I finally saw the lips at Pemberton and it was (in my opinion) extremely contrived. They have some good melodies, but I just don't buy the whole pseudo-psychadelia thing at all.

    A lot of pant pooping potential here. Except i can't get too hyped on the Gorillaz part. i still nedd to check out the dvds of the shows they did recently, but i saw a show they did at the Palladium after the first album/cd/collection came out and it was a bit of a let down. i'm all for that perspective to change though. If not Gorrilaz:

    All this would be amazing but can we switch Eurythmics and Flaming Lips who I don't want to sit through for a good place for DP

    That being said the rest of these bands alone would get me almost anywhere in the country

    I love the Flips and all, and the UFO show is surely something to behold, but really, these guys play a number of shows every year. And the setlist barely changes at all. Personally, I'd rather a Coachella headliner be a rarer act.
