Ticket Giveaway - Flaming Lips w/ Spiritualized - 7.16.13 - Stage AE - Show Preview - Concert Preview

A freaking great double bill is on Tuesday night July 16th at Stage AE. The Flaming Lips, one of the pound for pound best live shows you'll see, will be teaming up with Spiritualized a band born in 1990 with a huge cult following here in the US (based out of the UK). If you have ever seen The Flaming Lips live, on youtube or any other medium, you know that they are band not to miss live. With stuffed animal costumes, plastic bubbles in the crowd, psychedelic imagery on screen, et al Wayne Coyne and company put on the most entertaining concert you will see this year. The band is touring behind their latest LP, The Terror, released this past April on Warner Brothers Records. The group continues to stretch their two decades of existence with groundbreaking material, that only can be described by any other act as awe inspiring. We are happy to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show. As usual just email us at to with your name to enter.

From their press:

Having already announced a series of summer tour dates, including shows with The Black Keys, Spiritualized, as well as several outdoor festivals and the Rock For Oklahoma Benefit Concert in July, THE FLAMING LIPS will perform a string of East Coast dates with Australian rock band Tame Impala this fall, including shows in Boston, New York City, and Philadelphia. The band are touring in support of their latest album THE TERROR, their thirteenth studio album, which is out now and has amassed critical praise:
"Before the confetti cannons and sci-fi Day-Glo-pop operettas, The Flaming Lips made great acid-nightmare rock records about the high cost of transcendence. The Terror is that darkness returned: a gripping middle-age-mystic crisis with rude, cosmic-German electronics crowding Wayne Coyne's tremulous boy-explorer voice. The beauty is fleeting but piquant. A choral glow cuts past the clatter and seizures...Heaven, on Earth or anywhere else, doesn't come easy." -Rolling Stone (4 out of 5 stars)
