Napa Valley Expo, Napa, CA. – Here’s a recap of Day 3’s BottleRock Music Festival live performances.

Check out my review in photos…

Flaming Lips:
The Flaming Lips are known for their outrageously chaotic performances. This set was a bit different from the last time I saw/shot them. The show was devoid of the big hamster ball that Wayne Coyne is known for rolling out over the crowd as well as all the confetti and side stage antics. Instead we saw a solemn Coyne up on the podium, swaddling a baby, preaching and growling to the crowd.

Vintage Trouble:
I first heard of them at the end of last year when they opened up for The Who…and to my surprise were absolutely amazing. The energy they exude onstage is contagious. They play to their fans, soak up their energy and give it right back to them ten-fold.
