My buddy** Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips has an immersive art installation called The King’s Mouth at Rough Trade record store in Brooklyn. Wayne and his wife, Katy, are actually expecting their first child (feel free to join our Meetup, Wayne).
This is a two-part Meetup that’s FREE and open to kids of all ages. Partners are also welcome to attend.
(1) First, we will enter the King’s Mouth for an immersive sonic, tactile, and visionary experience (I won’t spoil the surprise). The art experience is open to all ages although parents should be mindful of children who are sensitive to flashing lights/sound.
(2) Then, we will walk over to East River State Park for some lunch at Smorgasberg, at an outdoor foodie market offering over 75 vendors and a great view of the city skyline.
From Rough Trade’s website:
”The King’s Mouth had been an interactive party staple of The Womb (created by The Flaming Lips in Oklahoma City) since 2011. It made it’s public debut at The American Visionary Art Museum 4 years later in 2015 and was featured in Meow Wolf in 2018.
The King’s Mouth’s immersive, hypnotic story is a fun adventure for the whole family. It’s LED strands and surround sound music make it a unique and enlightening experience.”
**I’m not actually friends with Wayne Coyne, but I did meet him once. For someone that rides unicorns and crowd surfs via a gigantic plastic hamster ball, he’s surprisingly down-to-earth!
