The Flaming Lips will perform two shows to celebrate the New Year at the Bricktown Events Center in Oklahoma City on Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. The band promises to pull out all the stops with MORE of everything! More confetti, more balloons, massive volume and maximum weirdness for its New Years Freakout 5, which also features very special guests Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band.
Expect exclusive merch to be available for this event only, plus Gummy Fetuses (containing a USB drive featuring three new songs: "Enthusiasm For Life Defeats Existential Fear Part 2," "Steven's Moonbow," and "Squishy Glass"); and Gummy Skulls (Exclusive L.A. Edition) which houses a USB drive that contains The Soft Bulletin: Live La Fantastique de Institution 2011, a complete live concert recording of The Soft Bulletin.
Once these are gone, they are gone for good. Also on sale will be the mesmerizing light illusion toy The Strobo Trip, which also include a USB drive with three exclusive recordings: "Butterfly, How Long It Takes To Die," "Found A Star On The Ground," -- the six-hour long song that will blow your mind way beyond the third bardo, plus "Evil Minds," are all on sale at the Flaming Lips webstore.
Also recently released is "7 Skies H3" - the 24-hour long song! This comes in a real genuine human skull artfully decorated with chrome and "7 Skies H3" on a hard drive inside the skull. Cost was $5,000, but those are completely sold out but you can hear the song here.
Are you going to nab any of this cool Flaming Lips merch?
