The Flaming Lips @ Word of South Festival

Adderley Amphitheater at Cascades Park | 1001 S. Gadsden St, Tallahassee, FL 32301

The Friday night opener for the Word of South festival, GRAMMY® Award-winning The Flaming Lips are known for their brave, frequently brilliant, and obscure eclectic tracks in the world of alternative rock bands. From their beginnings as Oklahoma outsiders to their mid-’90s pop-culture breakthrough to their status as one of the most respected groups of the 21st century, the Lips rode one of the more surreal career trajectories in pop music. Performing the highly successful album “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots,” the sci-fi-themed quasi-concept album cast The Flaming Lips’ most playful and profound songs to date, in a wondrous swirl of ambient electronics, digital beats, and psychedelic splendor. It remains the Flaming Lips’ most successful album, landing the band their first RIAA certified Gold Record.
