Wow, great review. I was wondering how it would work and I'm glad to hear it's still a great show. Hope they tour here.

Are the "c'mon motherfuckers c'mon c'mon!!" pleads gone as well?

Oh, and, again, this is just me being crotchety but I saw bits and pieces of a concert of theirs on Palladia....and it was fine, usual Lips stuff...but they were singing Us and Them (a song I revere) and they had groups of people on the sides of the stage that were there for most or all of the concert I'd imagine, dancing....and there they are during this song, dancing away and it just looked....so fucking forced to me...it's not really a song you rock out to....and I get it, every single one of them is hopped on some fucking drug, whatever, but it just looked idiotic to me.

Anyway, this is what it likely feels like to be IWB, my apologies. I'll stfu now.
If you were me, you wouldn't be apologetic. Maybe next time.


I'm sure mofo remembers a time when I didn't hate this band, as I used to be quite find of yoshimi. There are still a couple songs on it I wouldn't be adverse to hearing now, however for the most part it's just easier for me to completely hate on all the gimmicky bullshit and "how can we top out last publicity stunt?" trash. For all I know, they've always been like that, and it's just that I've become more aware of Wayne's idiocy recently that it only now clouds my ability to listen to the band. Highly likely, since I was one of those people whose introduction to the lips were those two comparatively accessible albums. And while i did enjoy them, it was hardly enough to compel me to seek out their entire catalog/follow them thoroughly since. I don't know, I don't care. I am not sorry, at any rate (see? This is how it's done).

Well I'm not sorry for disliking their music and schtick now, I'm sorry for ranting about in a thread where people are obviously here to praise them....just to be clear, Kojak.

You know, I think he refrained from calling us motherfuckers all night. But he didn't let us get complacent either. He's still the head cheerleader.

Holy crap.

Thirty-Five Thousand Feet of Despair would sound great with the Terror material.

Wayne will probably be naked and have tubs attached to his junk and singing into a baby's mouth when I see them (The Flaming Lips) in July.

I somehow ended up standing in between my best friend from elementary school and my best friend from jr. high. I didn't know either would be there. That was pretty awesome. Some guy next to us was smoking weed like his life depended on it. There were a lot of pretty colors, confetti, and glow sticks. The crowd was actually paying attention to the show, and Wayne seemed to absolutely love it.

I have no clue what their setlists have been like, but aside from The Terror songs (which were fantastic live), we also got The W.A.N.D., Silver Trembling Hands, Spoonful Weighs a Ton, All We Have Is Now, and Do You Realize?. I'm probably forgetting something else, I'll try to post a setlist when one is up. They could be playing all of those every night for all I know, but I wasn't really expecting any of them (aside from Realize), and they were all awesome.

Fun night, fun show. Seeing them for the first time in an outdoor, "almost free", setting like that wasn't disappointing in the least. I can only pray to mighty Cthulhu that the crowd gives the next two weeks of shows the same attention and response.

Just remembered I still haven't heard The Terror.

Guess that shows how high of a priority it was for me.
