"Watching Deer Tick at One Eyed Jacks in
the French quarter..." - Wayne Coyne, one day after ACL
"Burbank, CA - What would Halloween be without THE FLAMING LIPS? Certainly nothing as magical and incendiary as their annual Ghouls Gone Wild event held in their hometown of Oklahoma City, that's what. As we fall into the crisp Autumnal night air of the season's darkest yet sweetest holiday, THE FLAMING LIPS ask the question: Want to Participate in This Year's MARCH OF 1000 FLAMING SKELETONS?The Flaming Lips played a nine-song set opposite Band of Horses at Austin City Limits on Sunday (10/10). Coming up, the band will play a week of shows in Florida before their pre-Halloween parade (see above), and then another week of shows in Asia after Halloween, and eventually, in July 2011, a very special performance in the UK. All dates with more ACL pictures, the setlist, and a video of Wayne screenprinting an ACL poster with his own blood, below...
This October 23rd, The LIPS will once again host their annual MARCH OF 1000 FLAMING SKELETONS Parade in downtown Oklahoma City's Bricktown district, just a stones throw away from FLAMING LIPS ALLEY.
Last year's third annual Ghouls Gone Wild event was a huge success that drew LIPS fans from around the globe. Naturally, this year's Supernatural procession will be even more elaborate as festive floats, (in)appropriately adorned cars, walking groups and plenty of surprises along with 1000 strong undead snaking through the streets of Oklahoma City.
