    If ever there was an album from the early 2000's that deserved to be made into an off-Broadway musical, it is the classic Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots from psychedelic rockers and industry veterans the Flaming Lips. According to the L.A. Times, the long-rumored musical is finally set to release in November at the La Jolla Playhouse in California. While Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) had long been attached to the project, he will no longer be writing the book which will instead be written and directed by Des McAnuff (the similarly artist-themed Jersey Boys). Featuring songs from Yoshimi as well as The Soft Bulleting and At War With the Mystics, this new musical will assuredly be one of the most bizarre and surreal musicals you'll ever have the chance to catch.
