The Flaming Lips brought their sci-fi psychedelic stage setup to the Orange County Fair last night in support of their latest album, The Terror. Confetti, strobe lights, fireworks, and smoke bombs prevailed as Wayne Coyne stood above the crowd perched on his alien-like podium. One of the many highlights was their twisted version of Devo’s “Gates of Steel.” Hometown self-proclaimed “beach goth” rockers the Growlers provided support. Check out the photos in the gallery above and the setlist below.
