The Flaming Lips, Clipping
The Fillmore

Riding on a unicorn. Tumbling across the crowd in an inflatable hamster ball. More confetti than a Super Bowl parade. Rainbows of LED lighting. Inflatable characters. Two encores. A giant balloon that read "Fuck Yeah Charlotte." There's no LSD needed at a Flaming Lips show because the entire performance is one massive trip. From the opening notes of "Race for the Prize" to the final sing-along of "Do You Realize?" frontman/singer Wayne Coyne never let up with his enthusiasm. Between the songs, the props and the lighting, the alt-rockers never fail to surprise or impress with their stage show. On Thursday night, it wasn't just another concert, it was a memorable event.
