This past Saturday, April 25 2009, I was lucky enough to see one of my all-time favorite bands, the Flaming Lips, headline the McDowell Mountain Music Festival in Scottsdale, Arizona. As big a fan as I am, this was actually the first time I had the opportunity to see them live. The show lived up to my expectations and more. It's one of those you gotta see it to believe it kind of shows -- with confetti galore, giant balloons, dancing Teletubbies and Lips singer Wayne Coyne rolling over the audience in a giant plastic bubble.
After the show, Wayne greeted his fans and I had my copy of Yoshimi autographed. It definitely made my week, my month, maybe even my year!
