The Flaming Lips Celebrate Halloween In Oklahoma City With 2nd Annual March Of 1000 Flaming Skeletons

The Flaming Lips turn their thoughts to Halloween, "their second favorite holiday." As expected, The Lips will once again host their annual March of 1000 Flaming Skeletons parade on Oct 25, in downtown Oklahoma City's Bricktown district, just a stone's throw away from flaming lips alley.

Last year's inaugural Ghouls Gone Wild event was a huge success that drew LIPS fans from around the globe. Naturally, this year's Supernatural procession will be even more incendiary as festive floats, (in)appropriately adorned cars, walking groups, and plenty of surprises proceed with 1000 or so undead through the streets of Oklahoma City. Wayne Coyne will lead the evening's proceedings as Master of Ceremonies Extraordinaire.

In order to participate in this year's event, fans must register via the Lips' website website. Special registration packages are on sale now and include a reserved spot in "March of 1000 Skeletons" parade along with a exclusive Death-March-branded Skeleton costume, a Torch (participants must be at least 18 years of age, in sound/stable mental faculty and agree to participate in a safe, responsible manner, as actual flames will be involved), and a super limited edition event T-shirt only available to participants. It's going to be an unholy blast!

In other Lips-related activities, the Official Oklahoma Rock Song Advisory Panel has selected ten finalist songs to represent the great State of Oklahoma. Naturally, The Flaming Lips and their song , "Do You Realize??" from the Gold-Certified album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is one of the contenders for Official Rock Song of Oklahoma. Other finalists include J.J. Cale, Hoyt Axton, All American Rejects and Leon Russell and many more cool Okies. For a complete list of finalists and to cast your vote, go to Oklahoma's rock song voting site.

As previously announced, The Flaming Lips will release their long-awaited Sc-Fi fantasy film, Christmas On Mars, on November 11, 2008.
