Both artists are touring in support of new albums. In January, The Flaming Lips released Oczy Mlody, their 14th studio album, while Mac DeMarco released This Old Dog, his third full-length, on May 5. Watch his typically goofy new video for “One Another” in the clip embedded above.

It’s worth noting that when DeMarco perfomed at the University of California Santa Barbara in 2014, several fans were arrested for disorderly conduct and Mac himself was detained following the concert. Like that on campus event, moshing is also prohibited at the SB Bowl, but given that we're all three years older now, one would assume we've outgrown the urge to slam-dance to the smooth sounds of “Chamber of Reflection.”
