Ever been in a situation where you have to seriously think if something almost unbelievable just happened? Everyone at Iroquois Amphitheater Sunday night, August 26 has to be able to relate. Attention could not be drawn away once Le Butcherettes appeared with the lead singer’s tribal outfit and overall Spanish punk sound. Le Butcherettes even ended their set with a cover no one could’ve expected: "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus. The crowd was more ready than ever for The Flaming Lips to unleash their magical wrath. 57-year-old Wayne Coyne, lead singer of The Flaming Lips, moved with the vitality of a teenager as he shot confetti into the crowd, threw large inflated balls, illuminated the crowd with laser hands and later was seen riding a unicorn through the audience all while singing. With happiness also came respect as Wayne dedicated the show to a friend who had passed, bringing a picture of her on stage and dedicating the night to her.
