10-15-2009 Embryonic Release / Myspace Secret Show Hollywood CA USA

Venue: Ricardo Montalbán Theatre

This album release show featured a pop-up retail store of Flaming Lips merchandise, the debut screening of the "Watching The Planets" music video, and a half hour Q&A with Wayne and Kliph with questions taken via twitter before they were joined by Michael, Steven, Derek Brown and Ray Suen to play a short set of songs from Embryonic. This included the debut performance of "I Can Be A Frog" and the second-ever performances of "See The Leaves" and "Watching The Planets." A meet and greet/autograph session followed the performance and lasted until approximately 2 AM. Wristband passes to this performance could be obtained by purchasing Embryonic from Amobea Records on release day, showing up early and waiting in line for one of the limited number of wristbands available the day of the show, or through some radio station contests in Los Angeles.
