I honestly don't know if anything will top the brain-trip I went through last year, as the night transitioned between Feist and Lil' Jon (The Spin was there, too), but here you have it: The Flaming Lips and N.E.R.D. are playing Vanderbilt's annual reason to own a cooler with wheels, Rites of Spring. The lawn-trashing happens Apr. 17-18.

I never thought the Lips would be as big a deal as they are now, but hey, good for them. I guess I'm pretty glad I was able to catch them at a place as small as Metro in Chicago. (Hum opened.) Anyway, also confirmed for RoS: Q-Tip, Okkervil River and Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears, with more to be announced, of course.

Tickets and passes will cost you somewhere between $20 and $55, and go on sale Monday at 10 a.m., through the hands of lovely Ticketmaster or by calling 255-9600.
