I mistakenly brought my 50mm instead of my wide angle lens, was kicking myself and realized that I really was only getting one shot out of the night, so it better be a good one. Luckily, I was in the best seat in the house in the balcony’s front row, so I got the pleasure of lasers both above and below me. The white spotlights came down just at the right moment, and the print will be available for purchase soon on my website (I’ll update this post). Great weekend, great music, great friends, thanks, Disco Biscuits.
Flaming Lips released the video for “Turning Violent” today and there’s no naked Erykah Badu being covered in goo, just standard shots of a white room, the band, and Wayne in all his curly haired gloriousness with some of Gwen Stefani’s face jewels from 1997 on. You get glimpses of their new stage setup with frenetic spasms of rainbow lasers and lights shocking you into a world of technicolor as tinfoil receptors hang overhead. Oh, and glitter of course. It’s as minimal as a video with lasers and tinfoil can be.
