3 day concert slice of life
27 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

i was lucky enough to see this film Saturday at midnight here in Jacksonville, Florida. The San Marco Theatre is good for things like this. This was such a grand concert film, because it showed a slice of life in the community type gathering of a 3-day show. You could almost smell the unwashed skin and hair of tent-sleeping concert goers. Ah, to be there to experience the art and all the different types of expression that one could ever imagine. My absolute favorite part was Wayne Coyne from The Flaming Lips being 'birthed' from the big space bubble. That and 'Yoshimi battles the pink robots'... loved it! I so wished i had been there among the punk-pop-dance-trance-rock-indie enthusiasts.. because like most people in my generation, our likes fall somewhere in between all of them. Don't you agree?
