---> 2NITE BLACK LIPS SHOW IS -MOVING- TO MARKET HOTEL!!The above photo was taken by Leia Jospe the other night @ Maxwell's.
---> 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!!

A day after their three day run opening for The Raconteurs at Terminal 5, Black Lips headlined the significantly smaller Maxwell's across the river in Hoboken, NJ (June 2, 2008). They played only a few new songs - the rest of the set consisted mostly of tracks from their older albums and covers, one dedicated to the late Bo Diddley and another by their friends (and sorta-labelmate) King Khan & BBQ....
Jack White & Jack Lawrence @ Terminal 5, Saturday night (Play Vicious)
Brendan Benson, Nick Zinner, Jack Lawrence & White - also Saturday (roxxan23)
Are people actually saying that Saturday night show was just OK??? It was absolutely ripping and jack white is one of the best guitarists alive. The guy was going crazy on stage. He was more into the show than anyone else in the place. The venue sucked, but who cares, no lines for beer. [Anonymous]Black Lips opened all three nights. More pictures, and Saturday night's Raconteurs setlist, below....

Atlanta band Howlies have some great demo songs now streaming on their MySpace. Not surprisingly, this band comes from the same neck of the woods as Black Lips, and one of their upcoming Atlanta shows is with King Khan & The Shrines. Their self-listed list of influences is a long one and probably sums them up pretty good:
velvet underground. beach boys. chuck berry. howlin wolf. bo diddley. james brown. sam cooke. hollies. heat wave. freddy 'boom boom' cannon. ramones. stones. beatles. kinks. link wray. dion and the belmonts. swingin' medallions. easybeats. CAN. CCR. four seasons. coasters. mothers of invention. kim fowley. phil spector. stooges. misfits. tom petty & the heartbreakers. the falcons. flipper. hawaii. satan. the ATL.I want to check them out at Pianos TONIGHT (April 26, 2008) (@ 11pm) (before The Jones Street Boys). Videos & tour dates below....
Tickets are on sale for a June 2nd Black Lips show in NJ. This show is the day after they play their third show in a row at Terminal 5 with the Raconteurs. Then from Hoboken they move on to Boston. (thx Keith!)
Friday April 11th @ LOCATION TO BE EMAILED TO TICKET HOLDERSMy first guess for "secret longtime buds band" was Black Lips, but they're on tour in Europe. Bradord is definitely "friends" with Grizzly Bear, but I don't know about "longtime", so my new guess is Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but maybe that's just wishful thinking. I was also thinking maybe Deerhunter, though I'm not 100% sure why they wouldn't just say Deerhunter. Maybe it's because Deerhunter aren't supposed to play any other advertised shows before their next one in Brooklyn. Any other ideas?

I ended up seeing Atlas Sound twice at SXSW - first at the Pitchfork Party and then again the next day at Mess With Texas. Both were pretty good. Ryan Muir saw them at Mess With Texas too. More of his photos below....
Pitchfork: Do you plan to interrupt recording at all this summer for any tours?Before that, The Black Lips are going on tour with the Raconteurs. (thx Frank!)
Cole Alexander: I don't want to tour so much. We're known as this touring band, and I'm kind of sick of that. I don't want to burn out by just being a live band, so I really want to block off the whole summer just to record. We'll do the occasional show here and there. I think we're doing a show at McCarren Park in New York with Deerhunter and King Khan and His Shrines, but, beside that, I want to focus on recording. I feel like, when we die, it's easier to live on through records than live shows.
Black Lips are playing Terminal 5 in NYC in May (with the Raconteurs). All dates for both bands below....

I was wandering around LES, when I stumbled upon this guy was defacing the following movie posters. I went back to scene of the crime the next day. To find that another poster was put on top. It was just a promotion for the Black Lips / Quintron & Miss Pussycat at the Bowery Ballroom on March 10th.

Like Deerhunter & Black Lips, Dead Confederate are from Atlanta, GA, and are playing a show in Athens, Georgia show on December 5th. Unlike Deerhunter & Black Lips, Dead Confederate's music didn't immediately do anything for me. Their name does keep coming up though - KEXP likes them, and they're signed to Razor & Tie. New Yorkers can give them a try tonight @ Mercury Lounge (Nov 28, 2007). The Head Set, Drug Rug, Falcon and Five Times August are also on the bill.
I previously reported that Black Lips are touring in 2008 - two NYC shows included. Since then, even more (non-NYC) shows were announced. All tour dates below....

You may have heard the news that Deerhunter are going on hiatus. Well, don't get too emotional about it, because their definition of "hiatus" is five months off of touring at the most. They're scheduled to play ATP in May, and their last show before the "hiatus" is December 8th in Spain. They're also playing a couple of hometown shows with their fellow Atlantans Black Lips on November 30th & December 5th.
Not on hiatus, Black Lips (also playing ATP) will be touring in February and March. Tickets are now on sale for shows at Bowery Ballroom on March 10th, and one the next day at Music Hall of Williamsburg.
Insound is giving away a free Black Lips DVD with purchase of Good Bad Not Evil. Bomp! is selling a limited edition LP featuring music by Cole Alexander of Black Lips & Bradford Cox of Deerhunter (or get it for free). Download Atlas Sound (Bradford solo)'s latest track HERE.

Springboard Films has announced that the Black Lips (VICE) have signed on to star in the feature film, Let It Be. Scheduled to begin production in May of 2008, Let It Be takes place during the late eighties in the post-punk American underground rock scene. Atlanta's notorious Black Lips will play a fictional band who become a symbol of the changing cultural landscape.

The King Khan & BBQ Show is a Canadian Garage rock duo from Montreal, Quebec. The band is comprised of former Spaceshits bandmates Mark Sultan and Blacksnake. Mark Sultan, under the pseudonym BBQ, contributes vocals, guitar, tambourine, bass drum, and snare drum; while Blacksnake, currently using the pseudonym King Khan, provides lead guitar and vocals. [Wikipedia]You may have heard about the split XMas 7" they're putting out with Black Lips. They play Cake Shop in NYC tonight (Oct 25), and Montana's Party Place on Friday. And if you miss those, there's always December 7th at Don Pedro's. Videos and all tour dates below....
As advertised, the Black Lips played a crazy set of music at Sound Fix, that in circus-fashion, included costumes, burlesque dancers, a dixie land band, a crazy man, confetti, a fire-eater, and a march over to the Music Hall of Williamsburg for their second proper-headlining show in NYC in two days. Leia Jospe took these photos....
Black Lips @ Bowery Ballroom, NYC - Sept 18, 2007 (CRED)
I gotta say, if there's anything still subversive about white boys playing twangy R&B in 2007, it's that these four bros have the BEST time just being their skinny little degenerate selves. They are a band in that way that to picture them doing normal things just doesn't compute. They are Rock and Roll in the present tense. All the time. At least they were last night for 50 or so minutes. [the simple mission]Black Lips play Sound Fix & Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight (Sept 19), and then other places.
Black Lips @ the 2007 Siren Festival in Coney Island (CRED)
Come on down and join in the revelry at the Black Lips Circus at Sound Fix in Williamsburg (110 Bedford Ave Brooklyn, NY), Wednesday September 19 at 7:00 PM.The message goes on to encourage costume wearing. Tickets are still on sale for the Music Hall show, and for the Bowery Ballroom show a day earlier. Black Lips' new album Good Bad Not Evil is out September 11th on VICE. Stream it now at AOL. All tour dates below...
What is the Black Lips Circus? You'll have to come to Sound Fix and find out. But keep in mind, it's the Black Lips we're talking about here....
Afterward, lace up your deck shoes for a rollicking trip down Bedford Ave as the band leads the Bad Kids Parade to the brand new Music Hall of Williamsburg (66 North Sixth St Brooklyn, NY) , where the Black Lips will truly christen Brooklyn's newest venue with their unparalleled rock stylings.

PETA protest, NYC - July 20, 2007 (CRED - Jefferson)
NEW YORK (AP) -- While commissioner Roger Goodell was meeting with officials of the ASPCA, about 50 people urged the NFL to "Sack Vick" Friday in a demonstration outside the league's headquarters following the indictment of Michael Vick on dogfighting charges.* Battles are at Studio B
"Sack Vick!" chanted the demonstrators, organized by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals as they walked peacefully in front of the Park Avenue building. Many held dogs who had the "Sack Vick" signs on their backs and one woman brought a pit bull, the breed killed in the dogfighting operation the Atlanta quarterback is accused of sponsoring.

Levon Helm @ Summerstage, NYC - June 28, 2007 (by Sandwich!)
Is anyone going to see Bob Dylan at Jones Beach tonight? What about Rush on Monday?
Rodrigo y Gabriela and Vietnam for free in Central Park on Sunday might just qualify as the show of the weekend. JDH and Dave P are DJing too. It's really too bad that it's going up against Man Man, Illinois, Dengue Fever, and What Cheer Brigade at McCarren Pool which is also free. I hope for both of them that this rain lets up by then. Dengue Fever is also doing an in-store at Sound Fix on Sunday. (though is a show there even technically an "in-store" anymore?)
PS1 kicks things off in Long Island City this weekend with DFA.
Although Cake Shop's website lists Saturday night's show as "JASON TRACHTENBURG and pals", I'm being told the show will be a full-on Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players "open rehersal", and "a chance to see something new and be witness to the development of some new concepts that are being developed for the Edinburgh Fringe in Aug. A lengthy Q and A session will also occur."
Although they were some of the displaced tenants, Sam Champion is not playing the Pizza Plus benefit at Southpaw on July 13th with Teenage Prayers and The Legendary Captain Greech + the Shrimp Shooters. Wait a minute - who are The Legendar Captain Greech + the Shrimp Shooters???
Sam Champion are for sure playing at South Street Seaport tonight though - with Ra Ra Rabbit........I mean...
