The Flaming Lips @ SoCo Music Experience, September 8, 2007, Madison WI

Well folks... this was my second Flaming Lips show (the first was a spectacular show at the Barrymore back in '99 when Wayne and Co. were doing the Soft Bulletin tour) and all the pre-show excitement, hype and expectations leading up to yesterday's concert was well founded ... maybe it was hanging out in the 'pit' for the majority of the show, or being enthralled by the spectacular sound and visual effects, or listening to some of my favorite Lips songs being performed live. Some pictures from the party that The Flaming Lips threw in Madison last night...

More picture coming soon... Cheers - Ankur

oh my god, were you with the girl with the crazy headband? if so, you guys were such dicks!! Knocking my friend over onto the ground just to get closer -- I thought FLips fans were more chill than that. When I was at Bonnaroo people were so polite when Wayne and Co. came out. Seriously, if that was you, get some tact!!

Hi Emily.
Oh my Gawd...No we were not with the "girl with the crazy headband" - therefore we are not "dicks". Sorry to here that you and your friend had a negative experience at this show. As you might have noticed from the pictures, our photographers stand in the "photo pit" so they do not disturb the audience's experience.

This was my first time seeing The Flaming Lips. Overall I thought the show was pretty cool, even though I watched it from side stage. FLips are one of those bands that are more enjoyable further away from the stage. I'll have to remember that next time.

Thanks for taking the time to write to Madison Music Review
