Black Lips @ MAxwells

---> 2NITE BLACK LIPS SHOW IS -MOVING- TO MARKET HOTEL!!
---> SHOW IS NOT @ RIDGEWOOD TEMPLE!!

new location: MARKET HOTEL - 1142 MYRTLE AVE @ BDWY - BKLYN - JMZ TRAIN TO MYRTLE - 8PM - $10 - 2NITE JUNE 5TH

here's what happened: due to recent fights at the venue's weekend parties, the 83rd Precinct & the NYS Liquor Commission have suddenly, temporarily banned -all- alcohol from the Ridgewood Temple - we can't sell it (we had applied & paid for a license) and you can't bring it in yourself. We went to pick up our license to sell today and this is the news we got! Faced with the prospect of a completely dry Black Lips show (that wouldn't work now, would it?), we've decided to relocate the show. Sorry, this all happened with no notice! S'OK THO - THIS SHOW WILL BE AWESOME & MARKET HOTEL IS TERRIFIC!!

---2NITE---> BLACK LIPS . Gringo Star . TITUS ANDRONICUS . So So Glos @ MARKET HOTEL

The above photo was taken by Leia Jospe the other night @ Maxwell's.

I was just outside the Ridgewood Temple. They were loading stuff in like 15 minutes ago. Unless I'm thinking of the wrong place. The place I was outside of is under Mr. Kiwi's across from the JMZ Myrtle stop at the corner of Myrtle and Bushwick. Am I wrong if I saw Black Lips going inside and dude told me it was tonight at 8? Someone fill me in.

any idea when black lips will be taking the stage?

Posted by Anonymous | June 5, 2008 6:10 PM

there is no "NYS Liquor Commission ",
it is SLA, state liquor authority.
and "suddenly, temporarily banned -all- alcohol"
also doesn't exist...

so did the show happen? where?

Posted by Anonymous | June 6, 2008 1:14 PM

It did happen at Market Hotel; but was cut several songs into their set when some doped-up kid wouldn't get off the stage and was fucking with Ian, so Jared's bass got intimate with the kid's head.

whoah! sounds exciting. any pictures? please more info.

Posted by Anonymous | June 6, 2008 3:34 PM

the show ended early due to violence? that's lame. summertime in bushwick--hoodrats aren't he only ones getting their homicide on

There should be pictures up soon, with all the cameras I saw.

I can't be more specific because that's all I could see from where I was at the time.

It was a considerable risk taking Black Lips (and their fans) and putting them at Market Hotel and hoping for the best. I don't know if it would have gone differently if it had stayed at the Temple.

I'm disappointed that they didn't pee on the stagecrasher.

i heard they dont allow urine at the market.

Posted by corey | June 7, 2008 8:47 PM

reports of them peeing on each other have been widely exaggerated...reports on them smoking crack...not so much.
