NEW YORK (Billboard) - The Flaming Lips will play a “secret” show in Hollywood on Thursday, two days after the release of the Oklahoma City band’s first studio album in three years.

The MySpace-organized concert will take place at the 1,200-seat Ricardo Montalban Theater.

Tickets will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis at a Flaming Lips “pop-up” store operating out of the venue on the day of the show, and also at the nearby Amoeba Records outlet to first-day buyers of the new album “Embryonic.”

The “pop-up” store will offer merchandise, vinyl and CDs including the “Embryonic Furry Package” set, which features a bonus DVD and fur box.

For those unable to attend the show, the Flaming Lips will perform a track from the two-disc Warner Bros. release on Tuesday’s episode of “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.”
