HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Sat 21 - The Flaming Lips at Brixton Academy
It may well be a while since The Flaming Lips have released an album as magnificent as "Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots", but Wayne Coyne and co still remain a spectacular force live. At the End Of The Road festival a few years ago, they pulled out all the stops in their quest to dazzle and entertain - from giant dancing monsters and a forest of neon to an inside out body suit for Coyne and the traditional outing for the oversized hamster ball - and the result was one of the best headline performances to grace the festival.What they'll bring to Brixton is anyone's guess, but it's a space that demands to be filled with psychedelic chaos. And if you fancy going dancing after the show, then hop on the Victoria line up to Oxford Circus for HDIF at The Phoenix, where our guest DJ is James of Ultimate Painting and Veronica Falls.
