The Flaming Lips come out to play...

The Flaming Lips

bring their carnival of out-there sonics to UK shores next month, following the release of their most recent long-player At War With The Mystics back in April. In issue 275, we gave the album a healthy four-star rating and it still gets a regular spin on the office stereo. Dates are as follows:

4 November - Brighton Centre

5 November - Bournemouth BIC

6 November - Manchester Apollo

8 November - Blackpool Empress Ballroom

9 November - Birmingham NIA

10 November - Glasgow SECC

13 November - Hammersmith Apollo (sold out)

14 November - Hammersmith Apollo

Tickets are selling fast, so you'd better get your skates on...
