The Flaming Lips had a 90-minute time slot at Sasquatch! on Sunday, and with this time they were charged with performing their 1999 album, The Soft Bulletin, in its entirety, and with whatever time was left, dip into a few crowd-pleasers. They didn't get to the latter. In fact, they didn't even finish The Soft Bulletin.
The band's massive apparatus -- an over-sized stage set, dancing Dorothys, and frontman Wayne Coyne's obligatory walk through the crowd in an inflated ball -- sucked up too much time. Taking a break to present Sasquatch! its 10th birthday cake didn't help.
If you're in need of an extended Lips fix, the folks at the Puyallup Fair announced today that Coyne & Co. will be performing on Sept. 21. One can only imagine the kind of fun the band can have on stage with the farm animals and crafts on hand.
Tickets are $20 to $50 and go on sale Saturday via thefair.com/concerts. Here's a look at more of Renee McMahon's pics of the Lips' set at Sasquatch!
