Flaming Lips are Awesome!

Last week I went to go see Spoon and The Flaming Lips at the Molson Amphitheatre here in Toronto. While I always liked The Flaming Lips it was Spoon that really sold the show to me, so off I went.

Spoon went on around 8:30, which isn't too late for a show at the Amphitheatre since they have a curfew. The sun was still out and I was digging their set. Problem was, only 7 other people seemed to feel the same way. The crowd was kind of lame, but Spoon was stil amazing playing a setlist of mostly older stuff from Ga Ga Ga and Gimmie Fiction.

Sorry for the crappy looking pics, but I can't find my camera so I'm still confined to the iPhone for pics.

Anyways, The Flaming Lips were on next. Like I said, I liked them, but I was just at the show for the fun of it. I quickly changed my mind.

Right from the start, the Lips went hard. Coming out of giant vaginas. Walking on the crowd in a space ball. Giant confetti cannons. Giant bouncing balls been tossed around by the crowd. And that was just the first song!

They played amazingly and they put on one hell of a show. I didn't know what to expect, but that show is now somewhere in my top 10 shows list. Not sure where yet though.

I will 100% go see The Flaming Lips any and every time they come to Toronto again.

Here's some footage taken by people I don't know that were kind enough to upload to YouTube:
