    So do I, hence the huge disappointment.

    Granted, I probably would have loved the show if (a) I hadn't just been completely devastated by possibly the third worst show I have ever seen in my life, (b) I was anywhere but all the way in the back of the crowd for the Flips, and (c) if I was devoid of any expectations for any band ever... and drunk.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    Beirut were my number one act of Coachella this year.

    And I have seen The Flaming Lips twice, and they were awesome both times. In fact, they were amazing at Sasquatch. Third best show I have seen in my entire life. I cannot even begin to imagine they were as bad as you claim they were.

    Anyone go to Treasure Island this year?? I went Saturday and saw MSTRKRFT...awesome! Loved it!!! I didn't get to see the Flaming Lips but they were scheduled for Sunday night...I found cool photos and videos from the show here:

    Hipsters are around people.
    You're gonna run in to some of them.
    Especially in SF.
    Especially at an indie type show.
    And DEFINITELY at an indie type show in SF.

    I'm not really bothered by it.

    so i know in my short time on these boards i talk a lot about sleepy sun, but fuck it, they were awesome. i was expecting their set to not be as intense as their headlining gigs in the past, but damn it exceeded my expectations. not really like their full setlist that would included mellow stuff like "lord" or "golden artifact" but it was really groovy, heavy, hypnotic and just fun.

    beirut - aside from grizzly bear, favorite set of the festival. the music complemented the sun setting over the bay and the fog rolling over head. songs like "nantes" "elephant gun" "the akara" and "sunday smile". the band seemed like they had a great time. he mentioned that this was their last show of the year and how happy they were in be playing in the middle of the bay. crowd really seemed in to it too. simply put, great set, great experience and made the trip worthwhile

    This is the lineup for the 2007 Treasure Island

    Day 1: September 15
    Thievery Corporation
    Gotan Project
    DJ Shadow
    Cut Chemist
    M.I.A.
    Ghostland Observatory
    Kinky
    Zion-I
    Kid Beyond
    Dengue Fever
    West Indian Girl
    Mocean Worker
    Honeycut.


    Day 2: September 16
    Modest Mouse
    Spoon
    Built to Spill

    Two Gallants
    Earlimart
    Au Revoir Simone
    Film School

    Street to Nowhere
    Trainwreck Riders

    That's a pretty older (not old) skewing lineup.
    The last couple of years lineups, coupled with the indie-sposion youthquake whatever, have led to the TI crowd being much younger and "hipsterey"

    They dont bother me, I dont bother them, everyone has a good time yay

    I've only been to make it once, day 2 of the first year (2007) and I had a blast the entire day. However, the crowd was pretty lackluster by the time Modest Mouse came on, so much so that the Band actually made a comment about it. MM didn't let it affect them and put on an amazing performance, despite almost every member being VERY sick.

    My disappointment with the Flaming Lips is a bit petty, because I was hoping they would tour a large chunk of Embryonic and by the time I left they had only played two songs off of it. That album is possibly my favorite of theirs and the two songs from it that they played sounded astounding so when they resorted to the aforementioned "Yoshimi" and "Fight Test" sing-alongs it was just really lame for me. Passive's comments about all of the stage banter and song breaks apply for me too, but more than anything else it was the set-list that killed it for me. However judging by the crowd near the front around me I assume I'm in the minority by severely wanting to hear the new stuff so I would guess that it was a success for everyone else. The ones that stayed, that is.

    Jman I feel pretty much exactly the same way, but I just said fuck it and went with it.
    I had an incredible time and figure Ill just catch em on the Embryonic tour.

    I usually expect festival sets to mainly be crowd-pleasing hits sets anyway.

    Bob Mould's regular bassist couldnt make it to the gig as his wife had gone in to labor.
    So at the last minute, Bob called up David Barbe to fill in.
    It was a (pretty much) SUGAR REUNION (!!!!!!) and that was a huge surprise and a major treat for me.

    I have video of them doing "Makes No Sense / New Day Rising" ...

    If only the ballooney thing could have been wider. And lit up too. And in varying colors. And with speakers playing music loud enough to drown out that god awful noise girl talk was making.

    That was actually kinda funny, because they would launch the confetti and balloons into the air and the wind would carry them past the crowd and over into VIP and vending lol

    Flaming Lips in 2006 were two of my favorite shows ever. I was excited to see Flaming Lips in 2009 but it honestly didn't compare. when I saw them earlier this year the show had lost a lot of its life and most of its euphoria. to the extent that I didn't bother staying for it last night.

    The answer is b. The question is why didn't JewFro enjoy it?
    Get a better spot next time, it's the fucking Flaming Lips.

    But then the show sounded great so I'm sure I would've enjoyed it from the back anyway. I could see how I wouldn't have been happy with the Fight Test and Yoshimi singalongs if it had been my first time seeing them. But there is nothing like a Flaming Lips crowd singalong, except maybe a Queen singalong. But the Flaming Lips can do that too.



    And I don't get complaints about having obscure songs on the setlist. If they play nothing but the hits, people complain. If they play obscure songs, people complain. I've heard BOTH complaints in the past couple pages of this thread about the same show. How about stop having stupid expectations?

    Personally, my only complaint about the show was they didn't play every song I wanted to hear exactly the way I wanted to hear it.

    I'm hearing rumors that The Decemberists were enjoyable. That can't be right.

    Thats definitely a disappointment that The Flips are only playing 2 songs from "Embryonic", but like all the portopotties and random walls at Bonnaroo 07 said in spray paint , "God Bless The Flaming Lips". Those pictures are amazing, confetti makes everything better
