Flaming Lips at the OC Fair
I had the pleasant surprise last night of getting a ‘day of’ invitation to join an associate of mine to check out Flaming Lips at Pacific Amp. at the OC Fair. I’m not really a fan of the band and honestly only knew a few songs. But, I have to say they really won me over with their live show. And what a show it was! More of a trip actually. I have been missing out not being hip to The Lips all these years. Wayne Coyne seems like such a cool and creative guy. No wonder Volcom partnered with him, Biz Markie, Jack Black, Mark Mothersbaugh and Dave Grohl this year on their Yo Gaba Gaba collab clothing line. Positive, fun-loving and creative geniuses all around.
They solidified my new admiration by covering Devo’s “Gates Of Steel” and sent me home from what might be the feel-good concert of my summer.
