The Flaming Lips
There's nothing quite like a Flaming Lips concert, which generally functions as both a homemade circus (with the nation's foremost carnival barker, Wayne Coyne) and a celebration of idiosyncratic experimental indie rock.We gotta say though, we watched the Lips play their spacey new album, The Terror, in its entirety at SXSW earlier this year, and found the show to be spacey and ploddy—yes, even despite Coyne holding a plastic baby in his arms. Let's see what the crew comes up with at these two NYC gigs.
