The Flaming Lips took to the stage in NYC last night for night two of Spin Magazine’s epic 5 night 25th Anniversary Party. In typical Lips fashion, the show was an orgasmic explosion of light, color and confetti… with the occasional dancing guy in a bear suit. The set kicked off with Wayne Coyne climbing into an 8 foot diameter balloon as the band performed “The Fear”. And like every Flaming Lips show… it was obvious and awesome. The party continues with The Black Keys tonight, The National on Thursday and Spiritualized on Friday. If you’re not in NYC or can’t make the show, Spin is streaming all the shows live, so check it out.
The Set List:
The Fear / Worm Mountain / Silver Trembling Hands / She Don’t Use Jelly / The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song / The Sparrow Looks Up At The Machine / In the Morning of the Magicians / I Can Be A Frog / Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots Pt. 1 / See The Leaves / Pompeii am Gotterdammerung / Taps / The Wand
Encore: Do You Realize?
Props to the good folks at Spin Magazine for once again throwing one hell of a party.
