Every year, April brings Record Store Day. And Record Store Day brings unforeseen treasures. Such as: Flaming Lips' head freak Wayne Coyne touring the West Coast to meet fans and sign copies of an obscure Flaming Lips reissue that is not just an obscure Flaming Lips reissue. Yes, this is really happening. You might want to be at Aquarius Records this Thursday.

On April 3, Coyne will visit the Mission record store to sign copies of the Flaming Lips 1st EP -- the actual first recording of the band, made over two sessions in 1984. The remastered EP comes on 12-inch green vinyl signed by Coyne, of course, but the wowza packaging doesn't stop there:

Wayne will be selling an extremely Limited Edition version of the EP which is housed with a hand-crafted, custom-made solid white chocolate skull. Naturally, it is anatomically correct and life-sized. Would you expect anything less? Each skull contains a special Gold Coin that is redeemable as admission to any headline show by The Flaming Lips in the world.

The white chocolate is supposedly even tasty. We can't vouch for its flavor profile, but we're pretty sure Coyne will be at Aquarius this Thursday, April 3, at 5 p.m.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
