According to Wayne Coyne's hyperactive Twitter feed, The Flaming Lips rolled into San Francisco yesterday evening, just a day or so before their Noise Pop festival-opening performance of The Soft Bulletin at Bimbo's tonight.

The first order of business, natch, was securing some "medical marijuana" for the crew. But after that, where would a freaky rock band from Oklahoma end up on a nice Monday night in San Francisco?

Duh: Zeitgeist.

"Alright!! Gettin drunk at Zietgeist!! [sic] Weirdos smoking pot!!!! Ha ha," Coyne Tweeted at 10:29 p.m. on Monday.

Here's parts of the story, via Coyne's Twitter, of the Flaming Lips' arrival in San Francisco last night. (The middle Tweet appears to be from one of the band's road techs.)
