Flaming Lips want YOU to do your best to prevent another ‘A Milli’ cover

8 05 2009

The Flaming Lips are letting fans “Write the Night” for the band’s closing set at this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival, which means you, yes you, get this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ask Wayne Coyne and co. to cover Eddie Murphy. Yes, the band is letting the audience pick the set list and “will do their best to accommodate the wildest and most obscure of requests – covers included,” so get on it! If you’re a ticket-holder, you’ll receive a link via e-mail for your chance to vote. If you’re not yet a ticket-holder, you best get on that, as well, as three-day passes are already sold out.

So let’s see .. what are we gonna vote for? Rhianna? Bread? Vampire Weekend (heh)? Oh, this could be fun …
