Stardeath and the White Dwarfs

"Holy shit. If I had only one band to choose to see in concert it would be The Flaming Lips. Best concert I've ever been to, no contest. Friendly people, which makes sense: Flaming Lips fans are some of the friendliest people I know.

Words cannot do this concert justice. The music, the atmosphere, the smoke, the GIANT balloons filled with confetti that would POP in an explosion of rectangular colored shreds of paper, the dense cloud of pot - so thick you couldn't even smell the person next to you sparking up. And oh, the visuals, the fantastical videos they had, drippy gooey egg yolks, and naked dancing ladies, and naked drum-hitting ladies, and naked ladies dancing on the beach, and laughter, and love, and everything all around. I'm still glowing from the show." [Hilary]

In other words, just your average Flaming Lips show at Wellmont Theater in NJ last night. More pictures, the setlist of video of the band performing a Pink Floyd cover with opener Stardeath and White Dwarfs during the encore (they'll play Dark Side of the Moon in full again at Bonnaroo), below...
