Flaming Lips, Tame Impala, Rey Fresco at SB Bowl

Crazy, weird, alternative, jazzy, rocky. Did I say crazy?

This was one of the most unpredictable shows I've seen since watching an off-Broadway performance art show in New York.

The night started with Dia de los Muertos face painting. The SB Bowl was decorated in-theme, donning shrines, native Mexican dancers, and music. Locals, Rey Fresco, opened the show, also playing on a smaller stage in the plaza during the big intermission.

Next, Tame Impala came out and rocked the crowd for a long set. Lastly, the Flaming Lips put on one of the strangest works of musical performance art I've ever seen. Confetti and giant red balloons blanketed the mesmerized crowd.

Since this was the last show of the season, the party continued with Bowl employees in full costume.
