moonlight mile

the flaming lips show was pretty phenomenal last friday, even if it did get a little hot in the aragon...i think wayne had already sweat through his suit by the time he got out of his giant hamster ball to start the show...& the heat may have actually caused a couple extra breaks in the set, as wayne seemed to take every oppurtunity to bash our current administration & encourage the underage crowd to get out & vote...i'm right there with him, but i kind of miss the days when he'd spend the whole show trying to freak the kids out instead of enlightening them...oh well, it was still great, black moth super rainbow were spectacular & the night ended with a fantastic cover of the rolling stones "moonlight mile", the haunting closer to 1971's sticky fingers...i think candace summed things up best when she exclaimed after the house lights went up, "that blew me away!"
.
setlist:
race for the prize
free radicals

the yeah yeah yeah song
waitin' for a superman
