Former Flaming Lips drummer Kliph Scurlock to present at The Pitch Music Awards
Ah, yes. The Pitch Music Awards season is in full swing – in case you hadn’t noticed by the “song of the day” posts we’ve been running – and now, we have a fresh addition to this year’s exciting news storm. On Sunday, August 3, former Flaming Lips drummer Kliph Scurlock will present an award to one lucky winner at the Pitch Music Awards ceremony.
Scurlock made headlines in May when he criticized Wayne Coyne for seemingly condoning what Scurlock considered rascism – a conflict that, Scurlock claimed, led to his being fired from the band. He’s since apologized for stirring up the controversy. Anyway, Scurlock is back in town, and maybe when we see him at the ceremony in August, we’ll find out what he’s planning next.
The PMA Awards Show is at the Uptown Theater, held this year on Sunday, August 3, and hosted by World Air Guitar Champion Eric “Mean” Melin and Mills Record Co.’s Judy Mills (tickets here). The PMA Showcase takes place this Saturday, July 19, at the Riot Room and Friday, July 25, at Knuckleheads Saloon (lineup details and tickets here.)
