2016 Maverick Festival / by Rollie Agado

Finally had some of that good karmic energy come back to me over the weekend by way of some free tickets to Maverick Fest on Saturday...

Stopped into Southtown Vinyl on Saturday to pick up a few records and struck up a conversation with the owner about our plans for the evening...   I overheard him talk about Maverick Fest with a few other people and assumed he was going to close up the shop early to check out the Flaming Lips.  He asked me if I was interested in going and gifted me 2 tickets to the show!  I gladly took him up on his generosity and happily told Rhiannon about what occurred in the store.   

The Lips put on an incredible show in the heart of La Villita in downtown San Antonio.  It featured bouncing balloons, confetti cannons, led lights, loud sounds, inflatable bugs, rainbows and smoke.  It was pretty much an assault on the senses....

The highlight of the night was the band taking a few moments to talk about David Bowie before ripping into a beautiful cover of "Space Oddity".  Wayne crawled into an inflatable ball and crawled over the crowd to a platform just by where we were standing.
