Even within the eclectic world of aitemative rock, few bands were so brave, so frequently brilliant, and so deliciously weird as the Flaming Lips. From their mid-'90s pop culture breakthrough to their status as one of the most respected groups of the 2000s, the Lips rode one of the more surreal and haphazard career trajectories in pop music. An acid- bubblegum band with as much affin- ity for sweet melodies as blistering noise assaults, their off-kilter sound, uncommon emotional depth, and bizarre history firmly established them as true originals. The Flaming Lips will be hitting the road in support of their thirteenth studio album, THE TERROR. Don't miss your chance to experience the fun when The Flam- ing Lips come to Agganis Arena this September!
