The Flaming Lips concert in Barnhill Arena on Sunday (Nov. 4) seemed like more of a visual spectacle than anything else, so that’s the way I treated it. Instead of a standard concert review, here are some photos from the event, which saw frontman Wayne Coyne strip down to his underwear to talk about his leg injury (he’s fine) and a flood of bouncing balloons and falling confetti.
