Oct. 12, 2009 – (Burbank, CA) – Warner Bros. Records celebrates the release of the brand new, long-awaited album, EMBRYONIC, by one of the world’s most influential bands, THE FLAMING LIPS. The double disc -on both CD and vinyl– in deluxe formats will be birthed on October 13, 2009. On October 15, for one day only in Los Angeles, THE FLAMING LIPS POP-UP STORE will open at the Nike / Ricardo Montalban Theater located at 1615 Vine St. in Hollywood 90028.
Not only will fans have the opportunity to get their hands on unique artifacts available on this day and location only but the THE FLAMING LIPS have planned a very special, intimate MYSPACE SECRET SHOW performance just for tickets winners at this small venue guaranteed to blow the minds of the lucky few well beyond the third bardo. This might be the only opportunity to see the band in full-blown, maximum hysteria in a minimal space ever again. Get your furry freak on for this one time only psychedelic Hollywood happening. You won’t get the change to see the LIPS live again until 2010!
Tickets for the event will be made available on a first come, first served basis at the opening on October 15. Additional tickets will be available at Amoeba records with purchase of the Lips CD on street date, October 13. KCRW 89.9 FM and the LA Weekly will also participate in ticket give-a-ways so play close attention.
