Before you press play, let me warn you to turn your volume way down!  Coupled with the fact that the clip I captured is a pretty dissonant tune, the sound at Terminal 5 really sucks and the limitations of a non-pro camera you might get a headache.  But the visual is insane!  This all happened within the first ten minutes of The Flaming Lips’ show at Terminal 5 in New York on July 27, 2010 and I’ll let the video speak for itself.  It was a wild night that will live on in the history books!

Enjoy!

Fang Island

On July 27, 2010 moments before The Flaming Lips rocked my world, Rhode Island’s Fang Island got the sold out crowd at Terminal 5 in New York ready to rock!  The band got their name from an article by The Onion, so you know right off the bat, they rule!  They are all great musicians who played songs that were largely instrumentals with vocals that started 4 or 5 minutes into each song.  The three guitar players harmonized and took turns on vocals and expressed their extreme gratitude to The Flaming Lips for opening for them and playing for such wonderful fans.

"Is this all a dream or is it reality? It sure feels like a dream." - Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips

The Flaming Lips

I’ve always heard that Oklahoma psychedelic rockers The Flaming Lips are great in concert, and on July 27, 2010 at Terminal 5 in New York, it was my first experience seeing them live.  Nobody told me the show would be life changing!  I am not sure I can even begin to describe how awesome their show was, but I’ll try.  As the finishing touches to the stage were being made, I could already tell we were in for a treat because the backdrop reminded me of a Pink Floyd-esque wall of lights.  Lead singer Wayne Coyne emerged inside a life size see through beach ball a’la Peter Gabriel’s “Growing Up” tour and he performed the first song on top of the audience!
