The Flaming Lips and Weezer played their second of two co-headlining shows at a wet Jones Beach on Friday (7/29). As we learned from the first show in NJ the night before, Wayne and Rivers opened the show by riding in their own space bubbles as the remaining members of both bands played “Sweet Leaf” (Black Sabbath) on stage. That was followed by alternating sets by the two bands every few songs, starting with The Flaming Lips.

According to Rolling Stone, “The Flaming Lips had a tougher job because they were playing to what was clearly a majority Weezer fan audience. They even had to endure some obnoxious “Weezer! Weezer!” chants between songs.” Those in attendance who do appreciate the Flaming Lips’s great work were treated to their recent Neon Indian collaboration “Is David Bowie Dying?,” in addition to popular standouts like “The Yeah Yeah Yeah Song,” “What Is the Light?” “The Observer,” and “Do You Realize??”

Weezer, whose new material is slightly lacking (to say the least), focused a little more on their earlier stuff like they did on their Blue Album/Pinkerton tour. They played old favorites like “El Scorcho,” “My Name is Jonas,” “Surf Wax America,” and “Buddy Holly,” though they didn’t touch on early b-sides like they did the previous night when New Jerseyans were rewarded with “You Gave Your Love to Me Softly” and “Susanne,” in addition to two more Pinkerton tracks. They also covered Radiohead‘s “Paranoid Android” like they did in May when they posted a live-in-studio video of them recording the track to their YouTube account.

The encore saw both bands rejoin on stage for one of each band’s quirkier tracks. Wayne and Rivers traded verses on the Lips’ “She Don’t Use Jelly” and Rivers sang lead on “Undone – The Sweater Song” as Wayne ran into the audience shooting confetti.

Yeasayer opened the show in the rain with a short set made up of their singles and fan favorites.
