For one day only, the Flaming Lips will have its own store in Hollywood.
Warner Bros. Records is promoting the Oklahoma City band’s new album “Embryonic” by opening a pop-up store on Oct. 15. The store, located at the Nike/Ricardo Montalban Theater at 1615 Vine St. in Los Angeles, will offer limited edition merchandise, vinyl and CDs including the “Embryonic Furry Package” set, which features a bonus DVD and fur box.
Visitors to the store will also have a shot at winning tickets to see the Lips at a MySpace secret show being held at a small, undisclosed venue. Tickets for this show are being distributed on a first-come, first-served basis as soon as the store opens.
The two-disc “Embryonic” is being released on Oct. 13. The band will be appearing on the “Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” that day to promote it.
