The Flaming Lips
The Flaming Lips
The Flaming Lips are an American rock band, formed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1983. Instrumentally, their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock, including unusual song and album titles—such as "What Is the Light? (An Untested Hypothesis Suggesting That the Chemical [In Our Brains] by Which We Are Able to Experience the Sensation of Being in Love Is the Same Chemical That Caused the "Big Bang" That Was the Birth of the Accelerating Universe)". They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne's signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience. In 2002, Q magazine named The Flaming Lips one of the "50 Bands to See Before You Die."

B|_ank
B|_ank(pronounced “blank”) is the solo project of electro-acoustic percussionist/experimental artist Will Hicks. He creates intense and abstract listening experiences by blending his furious drumming style with analog synthesizers, coupled with elements of electronic percussion and digital visuals. His performances can be very harsh and pulsating, as well as ambient and beautiful. In addition to his solo work, Hicks is a long-time collaborator with The Flaming Lips and has recently been seen performing with members of Deerhoof and R Stevie Moore.
