Weirdness will replace crassness Friday night in Howard Stern’s SiriusXM studio. In a special hosted by Fred Armisen, The Flaming Lips will perform songs off last year’s Beatles tribute album With a Little Help From My Fwends, as well as other songs from their catalog. Maybe Wayne Coyne will even ride the Sybian.

The show premieres at 11 p.m. ET on April 24 and will be available for streaming on Sirius devices, smartphones and tablets, and on the service’s website. It continues the Lips’ push for Fwends, a charity album featuring artists including My Morning Jacket and Miley Cyrus that benefits The Bella Foundation, a non-profit that assists low-income, elderly, or terminally ill pet owners with veterinary costs.
