Free Flaming Lips show in PhillyJune 18, 2007
Although the evidence is sketchy, it looks like The Flaming Lips are playing a free show at the Festival Pier on Monday, July 16 2007 for a second year in a row. The odd thing is that there’s not much posted about it online. Hmm. Last year’s sponsor, Southern Comfort, has no updated info., Penn’s Landing’s site mentions nothing, and the real kicker is that the Lip’s own site doesn’t say anything about it. Ditto for Bob Mould, who opens, along with De La Soul.
I’ve (gasp) never seen a Flaming Lips show, supposedly the best stage show in alt rock history. Back in college around 1988 they used to play all the time at a tiny club, and the djs at the college radio station used to rave about the shows even then, but I never bothered to go since they always seemed to fall on a Monday… just like this one!
I’ll fill you in if I find anymore info. You do the same.
UPDATE March 2008: THE ABOVE POST WAS INCORRECT, BUT THE FLAMING LIPS ARE COMING TO PENNS LANDING ON MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2008 FOR JAM ON THE RIVER. IT’S NOT FREE, BUT THEY’LL BE THERE.
