Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger
When Paranormal Meets Prehistoric
It's clear that Sean Lennon shares with his famed parents a passion for eccentricities. So it's only natural he would end up with another quirky character, model Charlotte Kemp Muhl, a gifted songwriter and singer. They sing acoustic songs whimsically about the past, love, outer space and, according to Lennon, "modern things like the end of the world." Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger's debut album Acoustic Sessions, was released on the duo's label chimera records.
Before they kick off their tour opening for the flaming lips, Real Detroit caught up with the fascinating Sean Lennon.http://www.realdetroitweekly.com/detroit/ghost-of-a-saber-tooth-tiger/Content?oid=1478179

Recap of Day 2 of the Nelsonville Music Festival
Torrential downpours throughout the second day of the Nelsonville Music Festival could not prevent an eccentric superstar from stealing the show.
Wayne Coyne won the crowd over with oversized confetti-filled balloons, a space bubble and butterfly kings despite a late arrival that pushed many of the earlier shows back.The Flaming Lips' buses arrived around 9 a.m. when they were originally supposed to arrive around 6 a.m., and their complicated stage set-up meant that it needed to be completed before the other shows could begin.Coyne was omnipresent throughout the day, making a point of seeing other shows. Post reporters spotted Coyne checking out fellow Oklahoman Samantha Crain's act in the No-Fi Cabin and popped up on the side of the main stage during The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger and Yo La Tengo.The Lips' frontman expressed his pleasure at the day's festivities throughout the band's set, saying several times that he wanted to return."Whenever we play a festival, we're usually the weirdest ones there," Coyne said. "Today, we fit right in."Sean Lennon, frontman of The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, also expressed interest in returning to the festival after fans begged for an encore that the band, whose 19-year-old drummer was performing his second show, was not prepared to play.http://thepost.ohiou.edu/content/recap-day-2-nelsonville-music-festival

Concert Review: Flaming Lips take Fillmore fans on a trip
DETROIT — Local fans have waited awhile for Flaming Lips' return. And they wound up waiting awhile longer on Friday night (May 13) at the Fillmore Detroit.The show's start was delayed 45 minutes (with doors opening an hour late) by the late arrival of New York-based opening act The Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger, whose frontman -- John and Yoko's son Sean Lennon -- has enough juice to still get the group a full sound check. That left the crowd standing out on Woodward Avenue to catch sounds coming from the Tigers game at Comerica Park, but fortunately the Lips' fans, a docile and patient bunch by nature, were content to while away the extra time on the sidewalk.http://www.theoaklandpress.com/articles/2011/05/14/entertainment/doc4dcecd877905b697625682.txt
