Oklahoma eccentrics the Flaming Lips are celebrating their 30th anniversary as a band this year, and what better way for them to celebrate than at the Orange County Fair? Wayne Coyne and his gang of merry musicmakers brought their psychedelic show to the OC Fair on July 31, and while they were taking over the fairground, Wayne took over Yahoo! Music's Instagram as well.
After a quick disco nap backstage, a satisfying meal of carrot pie (so much healthier than chocolate-covered bacon!), and a peek at opening act the Growlers' soundcheck, Wayne changed into his glittery blue spaceman suit and hit the fair in style for some carnival games, rollercoaster rides, and a few bites of a steroidal hamburger roughly the same size as one of the Lips' giant plastic bubbles.
