Hopefully you don’t have plans for New Year’s Eve yet, because here’s something better than most options: watch The Flaming Lips’ New Year’s Eve concert from the comfort of your couch. I mean, champagne, pillows, and Wayne Coyne… what could be better?
As previously reported, the band will ring in 2k11 by playing their 1k99 classic, The Soft Bulletin, in its entirety at the Cox Convention Center in their hometown of Oklahoma City. For those who can’t attend, The Lips have teamed up with RollingStone.com and iClips to stream the performance live online. The fun will begin at 10pm EST, and in case you already have other plans, the webcast will also be re-broadcast on Sunday, January 2nd at 9pm EST.
Rolling Stone and iClips have also partnered to stream Gogol Bordello’s New Year’s Day concert in New York City at 9pm EST. They’re also promising a third, currently unannounced artist for 6pm EST on that day. So, yeah, happy new year indeed.
