The annually awesome SXSW once again provided many good things this year, and the fact that The Flaming Lips were amongst all this made it obvious fantastical things would commence.

The band is currently touring to support their latest explosive album, The Terror, but this hearkening back to days of old was more than appreciated by those present.
