The Flaming Lips and Not Going to ACL

So, I decided last year not to go to ACL and then they announced a great line-up. I still decided I wasn't going. Not as many friends went this year either; many for the same or similar reasons. Those that did go seem to have had a great time and many of the problems from last year weren't problems this year. Maybe I made a mistake? Oh well.

But, I did go see the Flaming Lips in concert here last Friday. They debuted new aspects of their stage show -- Wayne arrived in a UFO and road in a balloon down into the crowd who carried him aloft for five minutes while balls and confetti were being sprayed all over the place. It was impossible not to feel joyful. I think it was a great concert and maybe the best rock "show" that I've attended. Though I do think the cool air and all the smoke contributed to my malady this week.
