Here’s your listening activity for the next hour. McSweeney’s presents Wayne Coyne’s Human Head-Shaped Tumor, a radio drama much like that of War of the Worlds. Premiering on KCRW last week, you’ll recognize many of the voices and music featured in the program; Will Sheff and Oneida both partook in the show centered around an imaginary tumor. Listen below!
Last year Oneida did a day-long re-creation of their studio The Ocropolis at All Tomorrow’s Parties in New York state. It was super cool. Curating the festival was The Flaming Lips, the official proprietors of FUN, the live band that ends all live bands, the band that will cover you in blood and confetti and make you beg for more!!! Always men of impeccable taste, they have invited Oneida to perform with them again – this time opening for them at the Central Park Summerstage on July 26th.
The show is sold out, but if you can manage to grab a ticket or astrally-project yourself there, Oneida’s on at 6pm.
I won’t be going because the last time I went to Central Park I had my purse stolen while I was stalking my boyfriend and THEN I stole rollerskates from Gregory Hines. It was totally traumatic and also caught on video.
