That's my pig

The things you miss when you leave the party early. I wasn't there (don't ask, I just wasn't), but Roger Waters closed the Coachella music festival Sunday night with several firsts:

the longest set ever (two and a half hours)

the only intermission ever (20 minutes

the first inflatable pig (the size of a school bus)

the first inflatable pig on the run (see ya!)

Really. It slipped its bonds and floated free into the night sky. "That's my pig," Roger Waters was heard to say, as he watched it sail away.

N.B. It has since been found, or at least, what is left of it - shreds and tatters scattered on driveways in a nearby desert town, never to be inflated again. Sigh.
