Gomez

"After a brief respite from the road, we're coming back to the good ole USofA. We've confirmed a two-week run of shows in the midwest and along the eastern seaboard in July. We're kicking things off on the weekend of July 8th-10th with a couple of festival performances... [and] then head east, including a return to Terminal 5 in New York City on July 14th." - Gomez
Though the full slate of dates for Gomez's US trek have yet to be revealed, tickets are currently on fan presale for their NYC show at Terminal 5 on July 14th. Tickets go on regular sale on Friday (4/15). The Gomez dates are in celebration of the band's new LP, Whatever's On Your Mind, due this June. The band is giving away a new track for the price of your email.

At least one date on Gomez's trek (Chicago) is part of the previously mentioned DMB Caravan (thats Dave Matthews Band, for rills), a touring festival that includes a bro party in Atlantic City from June 24 - 26th at Bader Field. Though Gomez isn't on board for the NJ stop, the three-day NJ festival will feature appearances from The Flaming Lips, Damien Marley, Ray LaMontagne, Bassnectar, Dr. Dog, Fitz & The Tantrums, The Budos Band and many, many others. Full lineup is at the DMB Caravan site, and AC tix are HERE.

Based on what is posted on the Flaming Lips' own tour page, and on the Dave Matthews festival site, it looks like the Lips will not be performing a full album in NJ, though it's confusing because they will be performing "Dark Side of the Moon" at the Chicago stop (which is the same weekend they perform "The Soft Bulletin" in the same city which is also confusing). Regardless, there are still no full album shows in NYC, or NYC dates at all.

Gomez dates below...

What the hell are The Flaming Lips doing playing with Dave Matthews and all of those other boring Dave Matthews clones???

Flaming Lips need to do a Soft Bulletin show in NYC. Fuck going out to a Dave Matthews festival.

it's called a paycheck, idiots.

^ Which most people who are fans of both bands don't have.

it's cool actually, flaming lips albums are a lot better without wayne coyne talking for 15 minutes in between every song

12:07, Bassnectar and The Budos Band are DMB clones?

Anything is a lot better without Wayne Coyne talking.

When the Soft Bulletin came out, they pretty much only performed that album since they could not play the older stuff without Ronald Jones. Those shows were fun, although it was the start of the karaoke era. No need for a Soft Bulletin show since they already did a tour when they played the album front to back. I much rather see earlier material.

flaming lips are becoming a little overexposed

flaming lips havent released a good album since soft bulletin...discuss...

yoshimi is amazing, mystics is kinda lame, embryonic is fantastic

Posted by Anonymous | April 12, 2011 12:49 PM

I love all early Flips....then....Yoshimi IS a great record, Mystics sucked and I just can't seem to get into Embyonic.

"flaming lips havent released a good album since soft bulletin...discuss..."

As far as I'm concerned, I'd stop at Transmissions From The Satellite Heart.

A Soft Bulletin performance with a full band, not just overdubs, would be amazing. And they could definitely pull it off live and it would be amazing. Maybe they could do it at radio city or the waterfront.

As for the their other albums, Yoshimi is pretty dope, an almost as good follow up. Definitely more accessible. Mystics has a handful of good songs (Yeah yeah song, the wand, free radicals) and the rest are all throwaways. Embryonic has some really good songs and if it were just that, it would be a good album but those "jams" they have just seem to go nowhere most of the time and I always skip over them.

surprising to see the flaming lips play with a band that has rapes at their shows.

Posted by Anonymous | April 12, 2011 1:00 PM

^ Lips are still good, they are simply a different band nowadays.

It is a shame that that they don't even play any pre- Soft Bulliten songs except Jelly. Not sure why they let their amazing back catalog go to waste.

Wrong. The album after, Clouds Taste Metallica, is perhaps their best album. All downhill from there (but still not bad).

Posted by Anonymous | April 12, 2011 1:46 PM

ugh, T5. Why not Town Hall, Gomez?

Eh, I was kinda lukewarm with Clouds but that's just me. It's been hit or miss ever since (with unfortunately more misses).

ZAIREEKA REIGNS SUPREME

Posted by Anonymous | April 12, 2011 2:32 PM

zaireeka... man, i don't like how you only hear a faint guitar that entire album. otherwise it's just silence and random dogs barking. what were they on?

Posted by Anonymous | April 12, 2011 2:48 PM

To me, Zaireeka is their only truly listenable album.

FLAMING LIPS PLEASE COME TO NYC

The easiest way to prove someone is trying WAY too hard to be a cool music nerd or hipster is how much they hate on DMB. And as suspected, BV hipster douches are coming out in force.

Like the music, don't like the music, who gives a shit. But they each (minus the violin player cuz he kinda blows) have more talent in one finger than 99% of shitty hipster bands.

Posted by Anonymous | April 12, 2011 7:41 PM

@ 7:41 dude DMB blows, it's almost universal. Even in the lot scene at jam bands, it's hard not to laugh a little when I pass someone with a Dave shirt or blasting Dave in their car.

It's not a hipster thing, buddy. Hipsters would pretend not to have ever heard of him.
