The now even-more-controversial Black Lips will be playing some shows with Box Elders this March. So far, three NYC-area shows have been announced: Maxwell's on March 21st, Brooklyn Bowl on March 23rd and Bowery Ballroom on March 24th. Maxwell's tickets go on sale Wednesday, January 13th at noon. Tickets for Brooklyn Bowl go on sale Friday, January 15th at noon. Tickets for Bowery Ballroom go on AmEx presale Wednesday at noon; general sale starts Friday at noon.

UPDATE:
Full March & April tour w/ Box Elders is now announced. All dates below.

Before those shows, Black Lips will play a late-January West Coast run and February tour dates in Australia. All dates and a video of Black Lips at their New Year's Eve show in Atlanta playing "O Katrina" (with Brent Hinds from Mastodon) are below...

Black Lips > The Dirty Projectors

Black Lips>Passion Pit

It is about time someone told the truth here. The Dirty Projectors are way overrated. Black Lips are real. Dirty Projectors are self indulgent.

their time is over

Hey 3:53 - If you mean the Dirty Projectors and Passion Pit, you are correct!

evey year the black lips turn into more of a novelty band.

pretty soon they'll be covering themselves in fake blood and covering "the monster mash"

Last time I saw them at Maxwell's, their lead guitarist asked me after the show if I had any coke to do in the bathroom. I wish I did.

They used to be really fun and now all their shows are exactly the same...

I dig that the film (500) Days of Summer featured two of their songs. Awesome songs too, especially "Bad Kids".

Oh, and what about those question marks on Sunday's text in the concert poster below? No, that isn't saving a spot for a Smiths reunion or U2 debut on the Coachella stage, it's the way that Yorke presents himself as a solo star, the marquee at his Orpheum concert had the same punctuational flourish.
