Even within the eclectic world of alternative 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! HAMPTON BEACH CASINO 169 Ocean Boulevard 603-929-4100 www'casinballrm'cm THREE DAYS GRACE -- Septem- ber 27.

With a catalog of over 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem *Sweet Home Alabama" having sold over two million ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Lynyrd Skynyrd re- mains a cultural icon that appeals to multiple generations. But far from resting on their laurels, any illusions that this may be a band at anything less than the height of its powers are quickly lost with the distorted fury of the fiery guitar licks that open the album's title track and further put to rest with the gritty triumphs that fol- low. In a tragic tale oft-told, the Skynyrd story could have ended in a Mississippi swamp with the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members, including Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Since then, the band has lost vital players in Billy Powell, Ean Evans, Allen Collins, Leon Wilkeson and Hughie Thomasson, yet here they are again with a hard-rocking, stirring al- bum that can sit proudly alongside any recording that bears the Skynyrd name. The breed may be nearing ex- tinction but Skynyrd is very much alive and ready to throw down.
