This Monday, ACL Reel Rarities presents a split bill of the indie pop kings THE FLAMING LIPS and THE SHINS from back in the glory days of aught-four. Plus! Get a sneak listen to three brand new SHINS tracks from the band's forthcoming album. AND! Get a crack at winning BROKEN BELLS on vinyl, a signed FLAMING LIPS poster, and tickets to the next SHINS taping at ACL!
The night's program, a 2004 episode of Austin City Limits, is a split bill of can't-go-wrong indie pop, headlined by the artsy rock spectacle of The Flaming Lips (including a pretty amazing cover of Sabbath's "War Pigs" with Chan "Cat Power" Marshall helping out on vocals), followed by a more demure but equally entertaining set by those clever 'n' witty songsters, The Shins. A reel of some other surprise indie rock ACL highlights will round out the evening.
All proceeds of ACL Reel Rarities benefit HAAM, Health Alliance for Austin Musicians.
