You like that alphabet soup title? It’s Throwback Thursday: XRT (radio station) Big Holiday Concert. In this case, 93.1 FM’s holiday concert from December 11, 2009, featuring opening acts Pete Yorn and Phoenix and headliner The Flaming Lips.
It was a truly amazing concert with all acts firing on all cylinders. The Phoenix set was particularly cool because their drummer had a family emergency so the other four played an acoustic set that, while disappointing to some in the audience, was pretty amazing to me.
The Lips, though? Those guys are performers through and through. I know I’m not as hot on the band now as I once was but I will cherish all three concerts of theirs I was privileged enough to attend.

This guy was such an amazing photo subject. I got several of him and his forearm was my blog header for a while.
