PHOTOS / VIDEOS: The Flaming Lips Breaking World Records @ House of Blues NOLA – 6/28/12

The Flaming Lips chose right, ending their epic world-breaking jaunt across the Southland by bus on Decatur Street in New Orleans with a show at the House of Blues (their 8th in 23 1/2 Hours, eclipsing Jay-Z’s prior record). It was The Flaming Lips first time playing NOLA since their Sunday All Saints Day set at Voodoo Experience 2009 and thanks to Joshua Brasted’s (always) excellent work from both the processional parade into the venue and the show itself, we’ve got a bunch photos from the momentous occasion to share with you. See below.
