VIDEO: Flaming Lips cover Beatles classic

The Flaming Lips will wrap up 2011 with their 5th annual New Year’s Freakout.

The Lips will host the evening at the Bricktown Events Center in their hometown of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, where they’ll be joined by special guests Yoko Ono Plastic Ono Band, and Phantogram.

The band promises to pull out all the stops with more of everything! More confetti, more balloons, massive volume, and maximum weirdness.

“At midnight, Yoko Ono will perform 'Happy Xmas [War Is Over]'" tweeted the Lips recently.

The Lips and Ono will hook up on January 1 for the second of two nights, along with Neon Indian.

In advance of Freakout 5, the group has recorded a trippy, guitar-free version of The Beatles’ “I Am The Walrus.”
