The Flaming Lips circus, last night at Liberty Hall

I was pretty convinced that the Flaming Lips weren’t going to be able to bring their well-known, massive stage show inside Liberty Hall. I mean, c’mon – it’s a huge, festival-style behemoth, and Liberty Hall is proudly a lovely, now century-old, small-town opera house. But I was wrong – there it was onstage, the story-tall LED oval from Wakarusas and many festivals past, surrounded by confetti cannons and spider-leg-looking LED tubes, primed to blind the 1,200-strong crowd.
