Flaming Lips to play Hollywood show
Band setting up 'pop-up' store at Ricardo Montalban TheaterNEW YORK -- The Flaming Lips will play a "secret" show in Hollywood on Thursday, two days after the release of the Oklahoma City band's first studio album in three years.
The MySpace-organized concert will take place at the 1,200-seat Ricardo Montalban Theater.
Tickets will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis at a Flaming Lips "pop-up" store operating out of the venue on the day of the show, and also at the nearby Amoeba Music outlet to first-day buyers of the new album "Embryonic."
The "pop-up" store will offer merchandise, vinyl and CDs including the "Embryonic Furry Package" set, which features a bonus DVD and fur box.
For those unable to attend the show, the Flaming Lips will perform a track from the two-disc Warner Bros. release on Tuesday's episode of "The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien."
