Lip service

Gazette staff June 27th, 2012

The Flaming Lips are taking a surprisingly mainstream approach to notoriety: The band is competing for a place in the Guinness World Records.

That’s quite the departure from its recent media stunt of prematurely releasing footage of Erykah Badu’s sister covered in goo and glitter and slithering in a bathtub.

At this year’s O Music Awards, the group hopes to break the record for the most live concerts in 24 hours in different cities. The band is scheduled to start its journey today in Memphis, Tenn., and wind up in New Orleans tomorrow, having performed eight concerts along the way.

Most of the shows will be in the great state of Mississippi, where the word “flaming” is typically followed by “cross.”

The current record for the most concerts in 24 hours, for those of you dying to know, is currently held by hip-hop and rap artist Jay-Z.

Most of the shows are already sold out, but don’t worry: The 24-hour music marathon will be streamed live on so fans can witness the endeavor.
