Pretty good performance of the band�s entire 1995 album Clouds Taste Metallic. Some rare setlist events here: first ever performances of �This Here Giraffe� and �Brainville�; first performance of �Christmas at The Zoo� since 1995; first performance of �Guy Who Got A Headache� since 1996; and the first performance of �Bad Days� since 2009.
The show was being professionally filmed for a documentary on the making of Clouds Taste Metallic and Wayne Coyne urged the audience to be especially loud and cheery, increasing our chances of being personally featured in the documentary. Unfortunately for me, this lead to an audience-heavy recording although it is still very listenable and enjoyable.
Also of note, based on my position of dead center of the room on the floor and the fact that Wayne�s �bubble dock� appeared directly behind me halfway through the show, the event of me being crushed by Wayne Coyne in a bubble is completely audible during �Vein of Stars�.
