Flaming Lips Cancel Memphis Music Fest Gig

Posted By on Wed, Apr 28, 2010 at 4:21 PM

The Flaming Lips, who were scheduled to perform at the Memphis in May Music Fest have cancelled due to the hospitalization of guitarist Steven Drozd.

This will settle the dilemma of those who were pondering whether to see the Lips or Hall & Oates, who were scheduled to perform at the same time Saturday. But it's a big hit for the festival, since Wayne Coyne and crew were one of the weekend's major headliners and one of the bands that was sure to draw fans from out of the area.

The Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Band will perform in the Lips' closing time slot on Saturday.

Former Commercial Appeal cartoonist Bill Day, who was laid off from the paper last year, was named best cartoonist in the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism awards.

Day, who is now syndicated but unaffiliated with a newspaper, won for a series of cartoons on infant mortality. The series also received a special citation at the National Press Foundation dinner in February, and was lauded at the 2009 Berryman Awards as well. Day still lives in Memphis. And The Commercial Appeal is still without a local cartoonist.
