It's a busy week for big NYC shows. The Flaming Lips are here for two performances, starting with the gig tonight/Monday at Central Park SummerStage. Oneida opens. The Flaming Lips show Tuesday night at Terminal 5 is part of the Spin25 series of gigs running each day this week.

Spin25, sponsored by American Express's new ZYNC card (as you can see in the picture above), kicks off with Smashing Pumpkins tonight at Terminal 5, and continues with Flaming Lips on July 27th, the Black Keys on July 28th, the National on July 29th (all at Terminal 5), and Spiritualized on July 30th at Radio City. Show openers are listed below (Spiritualized, which has no opener, is the only one with tickets available currently).

7/26 - Smashing Pumpkins @ Terminal 5 (w/ Kill Hannah & The Jim Jones Revue)
7/27 - The Flaming Lips @ Terminal 5 (w/ Fang Island)
7/28 - The Black Keys @ Terminal 5 (w/ Lee Fields & The Expressions & The Whigs)
7/29 - The National @ Terminal 5 (w/ Suckers & Kurt Vile)
7/30 - Spiritualized playing Ladies and Gentlemen (TICKETS)
If you don't have tickets, we're offering one more chance for you to see the shows. We have two pairs of tickets to give away to each of the last four (that's all minus Smashing Pumpkins). Details on that are below...

You can also watch the shows online: SPIN & ZYNC are streaming them.

Several of the above bands have more shows this week too. The Black Keys play two SummerStage shows with the Morning Benders on July 27th and 28th (the second being the an early show on same night they play T5). Those two shows are also a tour kick-off for the two bands. All dates below.

The National also play Celebrate Brooklyn on Tuesday, July 27th with Beach House opening. They'll be back in September for a show at Wellmont Theatre with Owen Pallett who opens both Arcade Fire shows at MSG next week.

Pretty shitty support acts. Shouldn't Fang Island be opening for Paramore or Cobra Starship or something?

actually the flaming lips have a number of dates with fang island as support. it's their choice, not spin's.

spiritualized on friday is going to be a life-changing experience.

How full is RCMH going to be for the show? I suspect it will be waaaay to empty to be life-changing. I'll be there, but the venue choice was a bit ambitious.

I agree 12:54, it was a really ambitious choice for the US market, where Spiritualized have never been huge. United Palace or Hammerstein would have been a better fit. However, I'll be there too and expect it to be a great performance.

The Jim Jones Revue are killer.

It doesn't matter how many people will be there, 12:54. How many people were at the Last Supper?

^^^ The room was full though.

Any info about the drummer for Kill Hannah??? I think the guy from this tour is not their current guy Elias!!!
I found this video on youtube:

He's most def a monster drummer! Do you know who else that he's played with?
