As we approach the holiday season and our calendars begin to fill with lavish soirees and wistful thoughts of ringing the new year in in style, news today that might just be worth a trip to Oklahoma. According to a poster on the band’s website the Flaming Lips will be ushering in the new year with a performance of Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon at Oklahoma City’s Cox Center. The band will be joined by Wayne Coyne’s nephew’s (Dennis Coyne) band Stardeath and White Dwarfs.
You might recall a previous post about the Flaming Lips recently rerecorded, complete Dark Side in the studio with the band hopes of unveiling their take as an iTunes only release. The album, which reportedly features cameos by Henry Rollins and Peaches, is again a collaborative effort with Stardeath and White Dwarfs- Stardeath also opened for the mighty Lips at their last two New Year’s Eve shows.
So if you haven’t made plans yet, this might just the New Years Eve party of the decade.
