The Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips are an American rock band, formed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1983. Instrumentally, their sound contains lush, multi-layered, psychedelic rock arrangements, but lyrically their compositions show elements of space rock, including unusual song and album titles—such as "What Is the Light? (An Untested Hypothesis Suggesting That the Chemical [In Our Brains] by Which We Are Able to Experience the Sensation of Being in Love Is the Same Chemical That Caused the "Big Bang" That Was the Birth of the Accelerating Universe)". They are also acclaimed for their elaborate live shows, which feature costumes, balloons, puppets, video projections, complex stage light configurations, giant hands, large amounts of confetti, and frontman Wayne Coyne's signature man-sized plastic bubble, in which he traverses the audience. In 2002, Q magazine named The Flaming Lips one of the "50 Bands to See Before You Die."

Danielle Sullivan and Thomas Himes formed Wild Ones in the fall of 2009. The Portland based synth-pop duo started with a handful of bedroom recordings but quickly evolved to include multi-instrumentalist Clayton Knapp, drummer Andy Parker, and bassist Nick Vicario. Knapp simultaneously functions as the band's recording engineer and helped produce their debut EP "You're a Winner". The five piece is currently working on a full length record which is due in early 2012.
