As someone who has yet to see The Flaming Lips live, I get kind of tired of hearing accounts from my friends of how transcendent their shows are. I assure you this fatigue stems entirely from jealousy.
Enough about me, though, because you could care less about my pettiness and we have more important things to discuss. We have a pair of tickets to give away to a (very) lucky reader. The drill is that you need to send an e-mail to [email protected] sometime prior to 9am on August 3rd with “FlamingLips” (all one word) in the subject line. The winner will, of course, be notified shortly thereafter to give you plenty of time before the August 21 show at Marymoor Park to brag to your neighbors, coworkers, postmen and women, et al.
