Area Concerts (Updated Sept. 4th)

Upcoming Concert of Note: The Flaming Lips
With next week being such a huge week for shows as bands pass through on their way to Austin, I thought I'd just go ahead and feature one of those shows now. On September 12, the Flaming Lips (with local boy Kliph Scurlock on skins!) return to Kansas City for the first time in 5 years, and their first non-festival headlining gig in the area since they played the Granada way back in 2000. By now, everyone knows that a Flaming Lips concert is more about the experience than the music, but at least they deliver the goods. Chances are that if you attend this concert you will experience one of the most bizarre yet fucking fantastic Wednesdays in your entire life.
