Filming for the movie ended in late September 2005 and premiered on May 25, 2008 at the Sasquatch! Music Festival.
In 2011, The Flaming Lips recorded a six hour-long song titled “6 Hour Song (Found a Star on the Ground)”, and also in 2011 The Flaming Lips broke Jay-Z’s Guinness World Record for the most live concerts (8) in 24 hours, on June 27 and 28, 2012.
