The Black Lips
The Black Lips

I realize the real feud is long over, but I still couldn't help but notice that two of Monday night's show options are WAVVES @ Bowery Ballroom (tickets still available) and The Black Lips on a Rocks Off Cruise (tickets still available). Afterparty at Daddy's?

WAVVES also has a show coming up at Madison Square Garden.

The Smith Westerns are opening for WAVVES at Bowery and both upcoming Florence and the Machine shows at Terminal 5.

it doesn't look like anyone one of them has ever held a gun

Learn to hold those pistols the right way, boy.

Posted by Anonymous | July 30, 2010 2:24 PM

it's okay 2:23 looks like they're at a gun range so I imagine they'll learn how real soon... it's not like shooting is rocket science, any fucking idiot can learn to do it and many pussies do.

The Glass House show in Pomona on 8/13 has No Age as a co-headliner.

Wavves is chill

Posted by Anonymous | July 30, 2010 3:55 PM

wavves is the worst music of all time and it s the start of a scary trend of dudes who think theyre really cool and good for updating their love of blink 182 pop punk hooks (the ones they mention in every interview, obnoxiously, natch) with a bunch of extra mediocre garnish

Posted by Anonymous | July 30, 2010 3:57 PM

Love the black lips.. I am hooked to their music

Posted by Outofstress | July 30, 2010 5:08 PM

both bands suck

Posted by Anonymous | July 30, 2010 5:14 PM

I saw Wavves and Total Slacker@ brooklyn bowl.both bands know how to rock that shit!!!

Posted by Anonymous | July 30, 2010 5:30 PM

The only reason Total Slacker gets to open for Wavves at all is because they know him...weren't Beach Fossils supposed to open?

hate the dude but the new wavves is a pretty good record, no more lo-fi bullshit, tapping bethany from best coast too, seems like shit happening for him but still a spoiled rotten brat though, reminds me of the kid from the toy

Posted by Anonymous | July 30, 2010 6:25 PM

hahah! yeah Wavves is known for being difficult, but u cant deny the music

Posted by todd | July 30, 2010 6:28 PM

even if you don't like their music, the black lips are a hardworking band with good influences that deserves any success they have and walk the walk. they also care about how the music is produced on their records, even if its deliberately lofi. wavves is one of many dumbass slacker 90's nostalgia bands that embraces shitty old pop punk (as was stated above) except now, a band like wavves can get huge on pitchfork without ever playing a show and their records sound like shit because some people are dumb enough not to care. I don't wish the wavves guy any ill will but black lips are a million times better.

... 4 TOP BANDS IN BROOKLYN:: Beach fossils:: Golden triangle:: total Slacker :: twin sister

Posted by JAdams | July 30, 2010 6:44 PM

Not so sold out. There aren't 550 fans of Wavves in the world, nevertheless NYC. There is nothing happening or this band. Just ignore this movement. It will go away.

Hi Travis.

Corporate "rockers" with guns. I know that Travis guy from Atlanta days. He never knew that I thought he was a douche like the band he carrys water for. Now he does. You're a douche Travis.

Posted by Eric | July 30, 2010 10:05 PM

when thousands of people acorss the country listen to bands like Wavves, Total slacker and Beach fossils on ipods in every suburb...i would call that a little more than a "movement"...more like a thankful departure from over produced bands like arcade fire.

last time i was gonna see Smith Westerns was the night the Market Hotel got raided!

Posted by Anonymous | July 30, 2010 11:40 PM

thousands of people listen to total slacker? they don't draw enough to fill up a fucking closet. they just brownnose their way onto big bills.

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2010 1:20 AM

I repeat, the Beatles of this sub-genre (crap-wave) cant even sell out Bowery Ballroom. There are no fans, the whole dearth of talent and lack of playing ability along with catss on the covers of album is strictly marketing research.

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2010 8:23 AM

Hate both, but so sick of redneck queerbashing hicks in their nevernude cutoffs pretending to be hipsters to get laid - and people actually falling for it.

wavves is hippies

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2010 4:54 PM

I like that one douchy reviewer said the new Wavves record sounds like Blink 182 and everyone parrots it like it's even close to fucking true.

Retards everywhere, it's amazing...

Posted by Anonymous | July 31, 2010 5:43 PM

whats the difference between wavves and blink 182? I sincerely don't get it. Which is cool if you like blink 182. There is definitely worst shit out there.

Posted by Anonymous | August 2, 2010 1:01 AM

total slacker - no talent is lackin, music is not lag n, lets just say I know them and I feel like brag n

Posted by kaity | August 2, 2010 3:56 AM

You "sincerely" don't get the difference between Wavves and Blink 182?

Maybe it's time to stop listening to music.

the glasshouse show is going to be so rad for so many reasons that aren't wavves or abe vigoda. mostly the reason is the growlers and suprise! no age.

Posted by Anonymous | August 4, 2010 3:10 AM

Music is music. It's all subjective.. But wavves just suck. Fuck this kid who probably wanted to start playing some music solely to get attention that his parents and girls weren't giving him. Hip hip fucking hooray for winning over the masses drooling over this shit.. Goes to show that the masses are beyond mentally impaired. I'm surprised the growlers
opened up for this douche. They shouldn't have even been on the same bill. The show was over after the growlers' set. Besides crystal antlers
playing a few doors down. fuck wavves. acting as if all the shit people talk on him empowers him. What an arrogant cock smoker.

He's a fucking loser and he knows it.
Sorry for all you guys that like this pop shit. Hopefully one day you'll come around and other people won't have to hear your fucking hoorahs over overrated, talentless, pompous ball sacks in the years to come.
