    Miley Cyrus and the Flaming Lips are doing a six-city club tour starting on November 19. And now they're bringing in Glass Riffer DJ Dan Deacon. The 34-year-old Baltimore act tells Pitchfork, "I felt like I was in the Phantom Tollbooth when the offer to open the Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz Tour came in, but I have a pretty weird life and tend to end up in really bizarre situations that I never in a million years would have pictured." No word if he'll join in for Everyone Gets Naked Night.

    Deacon announced the news with an Instagram pic featuring some unsettling face-switching:

    Deacon, who recently performed at the inaugural Landmark Festival in Washington, D.C., is also doing a slew of his own tour dates among the nights out with Miley and Wayne Coyne & Co.
