Sasquatch 2011: The Flaming Lips, Live In Concert (Eamonn Fetherston, 6/02/11, NPR)

While playing the landmark 1999 album The Soft Bulletin nearly in full, Coyne chatted genially with the audience, taking frequent breaks during "The Spiderbite Song" to relate the anecdotes behind the song's lyrics. Another set highlight, "Waitin' for a Superman" — stripped down to a delicate piano and voice arrangement — was introduced as a tribute to departed icon Elliott Smith. Although the band was forced to exclude a couple of songs due to time constraints, it delivered a personal version of what many consider its finest album.

Recorded live at The Gorge on Sunday, May 29, the band performed its 1999 album The Soft Bulletin live at the 2011 Sasquatch Music Festival outside Seattle, Wash.
