flaming lips for free? no way [Sep. 9th, 2007|07:53 am]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry
So last night was great. At first it wasn't so great because we found out there wasn't free soco at the soco music expirience like we thought so we left and bought a bottle of seagrams. ew, bleh gross. Well I drank it anyways before re-entering the grounds. I only spent $5 on gas station food, which is great because like I've been saying, I'm broke. It was great that soco could put on a free event like that. Finally as the sun went down completely the flaming lips got on stage, and the entrance was great. Wayne came up through the stage in a big clear bubble and surfed the crowd in it for a minute or two and returned to the stage. The set was really good and everyone sang along. They made a big deal about bush and the current war we're in and they sang their song "the yeah yeah yeah song" or "with all your power"

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

If you could blow up the world with the flick of a switch
Would you do it? (Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya)
If you could make everybody poor just so you could be rich
Would you do it? (Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya)
If you could watch everybody work while you just lay on your back
Would you do it? (Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya)
If you could take all the love without giving any back
Would you do it? (Ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya, ya)

And so we cannot know ourselves
Or what we'd really do
With all your power
With all your power
With all your power
What would you do?

With all your power
With all your power
With all your power
What would you do?

If you could make your own money and then give it to everybody
Would you do it? (No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no)
If you knew all the answers and could give to the masses
Would you do it? (No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no)

Are you crazy?
It's a very dangerous thing to do exactly what you want
Because you cannot know yourself, or what you'd really do

With all your power
With all your power
With all your power
What would you do?

With all your power
With all your power
With all your power
What would you do?

With all your power
With all your power
With all your power
What would you do?

With all your power
With all your power
With all your power
What would you do?



They faux ended with "do you realize" and they had tons of confetti shoot up into the sky whenever "do you reaaaaallizzzeee" was sang in the song.

After the call out to come back on stage they played 'she don't use jelly' and I think that's the only other one they played but i could be wrong. And i didn't describe their whole set but they played from 8:45ish to 10. It took us about an hour to get out of the parking lot, that was fun. I had John take me home because i wasn't in any shape to continue the drinking.

So I had a blast last night, yay
