Grizzly Bear vs. The Flaming Lips: The Conan Editon

The Flaming Lips performed “Watching the Planets” from their album Embryonic on the Conan O’Brien show last night.   I was playing a game of Uno when they came on and I kept playing, taking frequent glaces at the television. Super artsy, etc – but I didn’t think it sounded that great. My favorite part was the motion sensor gong.

I must say that I preferred the performance from the night before. Grizzly Bear and Beach House’s Victoria Legrand sang a beautiful, melodic song from their album Veckatimest that got my full attention.
