LIVE FROM THE GORGE IN GEORGE >>>
Most bands wait until the end to go to the giant balloons and confetti. But not psych-punkers the Flaming Lips, who flipped the script and made a big entrance on the main stage Sunday night at the Sasquatch Music Festival. Wayne Coyne and Co. gave their 1999 alt-rock classic "The Soft Bulletin" the full concert treatment, backed by a choir of dancing girls, people in plushy costumes and a vivid L.E.D. backdrop. The hipsters up on the hill where I eventually wound up weren't feelin' Coyne's rambling, "VH1 Storytellers" style song segues, though. "Who is this old guy? I'm done!" shouted a guy to my right. "Modest Mouse! Modest Mouse!"
