Flaming Lips @ Bonnaroo 2010 (The J Train)
Flaming Lips

"It's not a Bonnaroo set without a wild-card cover version. The Flaming Lips and an allied group, Stardeath and White Dwarfs, played the entirety of Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" with no deference at all. With fuzztone bass and wah-wah guitars, a garage-rock kick and non-portentous vocals, it went lurching toward Flaming Lips' disheveled version of madness rather than Pink Floyd's majestic one.

Wayne Coyne, to stir up the crowd, claimed there was actual money inside some of the balloons released during "Money." Who knows?"
[NY Times]

You can listen to the Flaming Lips' 2-set performance in NPR's archive. People have also posted it for download.

Tickets are on sale at 11am for the upcoming Flaming Lips show at Terminal 5.

Never understood why people want to see other bands cover the originals!?

Sorry 9:20, but they haven't been opening with Race For The Prize this year. Worm Mt. has been the opener (saw them @ The Wellmont). I don't think they've played anything pre-Yoshimi this tour (except "She Don't Use Jelly" of course.)

Olá,

The jilted lovers at NOVO FAUVE think you might appreciate AMERICUNT!, veritable lo-fi fuck-yous with songs such as Tandoori Sun, Egg White Washed, and iPussy.

Give it a whirl, dear one!

With a wide broken heart,

I wonder if there was some hummus there, perhaps there will be at Terminal 5.

I wish the F'Lips would switch it up a little...some other stuff from Clouds Taste Metallic or Transmissions would be nice

Because of their visual show the Flaming Lips setlist are very rigid. I think they need to toss the theaterics and play a straigh up rock show! Mix up the setlist too!

yeah, i know the flaming lips have a newish album to support but i don't think it would kill them to put a few more old songs in the set. they have a pretty big back catalog that doesn't get touched live nowadays.

just letting you all know that i'll pass on all of this. k.

i'm seeing the national already on july 27th. DAMMIT. i'd love to see the flaming lips for a third time, and then see the national on the 29th. UCH.

they were incredible at bonnaroo. they played a good two and a half hours. i didn't stay the whole time (had to see some chromeo and black keys before, and some kid cudi afterwards), but their dark side was amazing.

whoever asked about dark side at summerstage: when i saw them at wellmont, the encore was with stardeath and they played the last two or three songs from dark side. it was beautiful.

Thanks Bowery Presents employee!

Even sitting behind the bleachers is more comfortable than watching shows at T5!

Man the Flaming Lip have come a long way since the days of performing at tiny, small, dingy clubs. Good for them. They are one of the few 90's bands to still keep going, and getting more massive.

Hey Genius (aka Johnny Greenwood is the man),

Bowery Presents are doing the Summertage show, too.

Julian Cope on Mac:

"I gots to tell y’all that when I heard the other day that the Bunnymen’s Ian McCulloch is writing his autobiography, I nearly shat my undies laughing so hard (good job I don’t wear any!); Ian Mac write a book? A man for whom completing a single song on his own is a struggle of Everest the Hard Way proportions is hardly going to write a book. Ian, I’m speechless at your continued arrogance in the face of no evidence whatsoever. In my opinion, you’ve been a dried-up shell of a husk of a man since just after OCEAN RAIN, so don’t embarrass us all with your ludicrous claims that you’re gonna write an autobiography. Two words… No Way. Writing a book involves discipline and hard work, two things you never nailed in the past and never will. As I heard it, you even said in the press that your book will be better than the Bible. Well, in two ways it may well be like the Bible: 1) it’ll be full of half-truths and outright lies, and 2) it’ll have been written by umpteen uncredited writers and you’ll name yourself solely as its author. There you go, dumkopf, I just handed you the map: don’t even bother buying yourself a pen, son; just do what you’ve always done throughout your career; get someone else to do most of the work then claim all the credit yourself. I even have a title already: MAC USER. And with that, I shall sweep off into the Beltane sunset. Yowzah!"

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
