Last night I saw The Flaming Lips open and play as back-up band for Beck. The Flaming Lips played only a 40-minute set, and they actually started at 8:00 PM, when the concert was “supposed” to start. (This is how rats must feel in a B.F. Skinner experiment for behaviorism, the random reward pattern works best.) Amazing, but we missed a few songs. Still, quite a show. I’ve seen bands that like more than Beck, but he’s such a good performer that I enjoyed his concert more.
