More Flaming Lips + Tame Impala Gigs

The Flaming Lips have booked another leg of dates with Tame Impala. It’s almost too much psychedelic goodness to handle. In addition to playing the East Coast this fall, the Lips and Aussie rockers will be now be hitting up the West Coast for a short run of gigs.

The new dates are scheduled in California with stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Santa Barbara.
