Tonight: The Flaming Lips !

Sam’s uncle surprised us with tickets to The Flaming Lips for last night’s show at the Grand Ole Opry.  I was a little worried about seeing such an intense show there – as I usually am – because it’s pew seating and generally a pretty stuffy place.  It’s the kind of place you’d love to see Fiona Apple play When The Pawn… from start to finish.  Somehow they managed to make it feel like you were some place else entirely – the giant ball (Zorb??) even made an appearance somehow!

To be honest I was never really into the Flaming Lips.  There are some songs that I like, but I was never much into the psychedelic stuff personally – but LIVE it was a different story.  It was more like performance art.  

I have to admit, the whole hippy LOVE vibe got to me, Sam claims to have even teared up at the end.  :)

We were able to get some amazing shots due to our awesome seats, awesome camera policy, and Sam’s all around photo taking awesomeness.  Made some friends, saw some old ones, all in all, it was quite a good time.
