Watch and Enjoy: An Insane Treasure Trove of Rare Flaming Lips Videos

Posted By on Fri, Sep 17, 2010 at 11:00 AM

So, yes, the Flaming Lips is performing tonight at the Pageant. Expect spectacle, confetti, joy, psych-pop and other such shenanigans -- and look for a review and photos tomorrow. To pump yourself up -- or to console yourself if you don't have a ticket -- please enjoy this mind-boggling treasure trove of Flaming Lips videos, courtesy of Vimeo user Chris Bully. "Here I offer a plethora of rarely seen Flaming Lips footage," his profile notes. "I'll continue adding more each week. Requests are welcome, Enjoy." The account contains interviews, TV appearances, live footage, in-stores -- and yes, the band's appearance on Beverly Hills, 90210. Peach Pit After Dark, y'all!

"You know, I've never been a big fan of alternative music, but these guys rocked the house!"
