Pufnstuf, the trippy late-Sixties Saturday morning kids television show created by Syd and Marty Kroft. Continue reading →

It was a double shot of modern psychedelic rock last night at Festival Pier with a double-bill of long-running cult faves The Flaming Lips as well as current luminaries Tame Impala. The five-piece Impala went first, playing a set that drew on both its current record Lonerism as well as its 2010 debut Innerspeaker. The performance was backed by a LED screen projecting patterns, colors and shapes in constant motion; the Lips, on the other hand, went trademark full-force with smoke plumes, firecrackers, Wayne Coyne singing from atop an octopus-looking spacecraft (or a spacecraft-looking octopus) and more. Joining in the fun, fans came to the show decked out in their most bizarre attire. Check out photos from the crazy show in the gallery below.
