Watch Weezer & Flaming Lips Play “She Don’t Use Jelly” Together

The Flaming Lips and Weezer — two bands who continue to reinvent the live music experience — literally shared a stage last night at NJ’s PNC Banks Art Center. At the start, Wayne Coyne and Rivers Cuomo rolled over in the audience in double bubbles (which you can see in Wayne’s Twitpics above) as their respective bands played Black Sabbath’s “Sweet Leaf.” The Lips & Weezer then traded the spotlight every couple of songs before the night ended with both bands joining forces on “She Don’t Use Jelly” and “Undone – The Sweater Song.” A report from YouTuber psychexfutureheart:

They closed it like it was a 1994 episode of 120 minutes – playing “She Don’t Use Jelly” (aka The Vaseline Song) and “Undone (The Sweater Song)” together. On “Jelly” Rivers sang the second verse (while Wayne bowed down to him on one knee) and then traded off lines with Wayne on the third. For “Undone” Wayne rode on a bear’s shoulders walking through the front of the audience and shot his streamer gun … (well a guy dressed up as a bear that is). Steven Drozd seemed to be really digging playing the “Undone” guitar part with Weezer.

Bummer they couldn’t get a real bear. Watch “Jelly” from both the audience’s perspective, and (even cooler) from Wayne’s camera, below.
