8 Shows in 24 Hours

The Flaming lips have pulled off a pretty cool feat. The previous record holder for most shows in 24 hours was Jay-Z at 7. The Flaming lips set out to beat him by just 1. And they did just that Thursday night, ending in New Orleans.

The band played super quick sets at various cities across the south. Those in attendance were not given much time, but could always say that they were at a record breaking show. They also made it better for fans by being a part of the O Music Awards — a traveling awards festival that gave fans tons of other performances by bands such as Phantogram, Neon Indian, Jackson Browne, Givers and tons more.

The band has just released a record “The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends” featuring an artist in every song. Some of the artists included are Bon Iver, Ke$ha, Edward Sharpe, and Tame Impala. They have been releasing so much music this year on their website that an actual album is very exciting. Especially with such random and popular artists being featured on the album, this one is making a splash and it should be pretty good.

Some would be suspicious of a possible sell out by the lips because of the collaborations with Ke$ha and such, but I wouldn’t worry. The lips have always done weird but fun things. This is just that except with maybe more fun than weird this time. If you don’t like it, there is plenty more new Flaming Lips for you out there.
