Innercity Live & Hull UK City of Culture 2017 announce The Flaming Lips with Special Guests such as Public Service Broadcasting, Dutch Uncles and Fonda 500 on 24th June.
In honour of the Hull UK City of Culture celebrations this Summer, Innercity Live is delighted to bring to the party a night of exceptional live music at Zebedee’s Yard set to feature esteemed headliners The Flaming Lips, plus support from special guests Public Service Broadcasting. And now we are delighted to just reveal further special guests joining the bill: Dutch Uncles and Fonda 500.
On Saturday 24th June 2017, neo-psychedelicextraordinaires The Flaming Lips will be cramming their flight cases with their finest fancy dress, confetti cannons and whacked-out visuals as they head for the 2017 Capital with a face-melting live performance in mind. Currently out on the road with their horizon bending ‘Oczy Mlody’ album, Wayne Coyne and his rag tag bunch of mystical musicians will descend on the city with a set loaded with prismatic pop curiosities from the album, and a whirl through some of their oddball opuses such as “Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots”, “Do you Realize???”, “Race For The Prize”, “Fight Test” and on…
Also looking to expand your mind that evening, though perhaps in a somewhat less kaleidoscopic manner, Public Service Broadcasting join the bill to Inform, Educate and Entertain with a sample-tastic set of their beguiling brainiac pop. As the interstellar overdrive of their epic ‘The Race For Space’ tour draws to a close, the pseudonymous duo made up of J Wilgoose Esq. and Wrigglesworth will be charting a course for home via Hull to blast through their scintillating singles the likes ‘Gagarin’, ‘Spitfire’, ‘Sputnik’ and more.
We are delighted to announce additional support on the day will come from Marple’s finest angular art-pop outfit Dutch Uncles who, now five albums into their career, will bring the boisterous delights of their latest ’Big Balloon’ to the bash.
Whilst completing the bill, emerging local heroes Fonda 500 will be flying the flag for fresh and merging music culture in Hull. With NME describing the band as having a penchant “twisted pop magic of the highest order” – make sure you’re in early doors!
Taking place at Zebedee’s Yard in Hull’s Old Town, tickets for the event will be available on General Sale on Wednesday 1st March at 9am. Full details as follows:
