The Flaming Lips play in Big Sur tonight. Probably a bit far to drive if you're not a Flaming Lips fanatic but, well, most of their fans are. And why not? The Oklahoma band is notorious for the spectacle of its live show. But on the off-chance that simply watching isn't enough, our sister blog at the Riverfront Times in St. Louis created a series of bingo cards featuring some things you're likely to see during the Lips' set -- as well as some you'll have to look hard to see and some you might not see at all.
For all their exuberance and excess, the Lips are a detail-oriented band, and that's what we're celebrating with these cards. Some of these squares are self-explanatory (no idea what to tell you if you miss the confetti cannon), but a few are puzzles. Enjoy,
Two more cards are on the next page.
