Flaming Lips, Modest Mouse, Frank Black shows annouced

The Flaming Lips know all about putting on a hell of a show, and the Monolith Festival gig at Red Rocks in 2007 was one most phenomenal things to happen to that venue in the last few years. Lets hope for a repeat performance when the Lips return to Red Rocks Sunday, August 23 with Explosions in the Sky and Star Death & the White Dwarfs, which features Wayne Coyne's nephew Dennis. Tickets, which run from $36.75 to $46.50, go on sale Saturday, June 20 at 10 a.m. And as an added bonus, all tickets sold online will include a digital download of three brand new unreleased songs from the upcoming album, three B-sides hand picked by Wayne Coyne and a live audio recording of the Red Rocks show. In other concert news, Modest Mouse will visit the Fillmore Auditorium Wednesday, September 2 and Frank Black plays the intimate Walnut Room Wednesday, July 29.
