When one of Lawrence’s best concert venues turns 100, it celebrates in style. A party of epic proportions featured performances from The Flaming Lips and Deerhoof, along with a massive outdoor party. The Flaming Lips are generally festival favorites, which is why seeing their colorful carnage erupt inside a venue (as opposed to an outdoor stage) was such a sight to behold. The sweaty show was sold out, but that didn’t keep hundreds of enthusiastic party-goers from gathering for the outdoor street party (which kept on well into the night).
Here are some scenes from the legendary night. You can scroll to the bottom for video.
