A big triple wow for Flying Lotus’ sold-out show at the Neptune Theatre Tuesday, Nov. 18. One wow for the non-stop assault of electronically mashed up sound, one for the warp-speed 3D visuals by Timeboy and Strangeloop — they came last year, too, but this was my first encounter — and one for the opening trio…
