Wayne Coyne on his way to Venus, Coachella 2004
This isn’t exactly a scoop, but…
SoCo announced some of the hottest music acts will play the SoCo Music Experience (SCMX) stages with some of the best and brightest local artists in San Diego, August 25.
The event will feature Flaming Lips, Z-Trip and Special Guests, Galactic, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Delta Spirit. It will take place at the Ace Parking Lot (Corner of Park Blvd. & Imperial Ave. next to Petco Park) on Saturday, Aug. 25 (Gates open at 3:00 p.m.; close at 11:30 p.m.).
The event is free and 21+.
Flaming Lips, BRMC, knowing the person next to you is of the age of consent in all US territories, free Southern Comfort
Flaming Lips, BRMC, the possibility that the person next to you is the kind of person that drinks a lot of Southern Comfort, it’s not free Jim Beam
The Flaming Lips are still a good time, no doubt. Unfortunately, they’re at least two albums removed from their greatest work, The Soft Bulletin, and probably haven’t realized it just yet. BRMC is fine, I suppose–certainly good enough to warrant seeing for free. I just hope it’s not a SoCo or no-co kind of situation: they better have some beer, because the idea of thousands of people drinking SoCo for eight hours in the sun in August is in the running for worst idea ever–kind of like the “Free Dozen Egg night” promotion in BASEketball.
What, no Brand New? Don’t they have a song called “SoCo Amaretto Lime?”
