Black Lips / Night Beats / Night Birds @ House of Vans 7/3/2014
Then the Black Lips erupted into a frenetic, hour-long set spanning its decade-plus-long career of love letters to early garage rock, amplified and exquisitely distorted for the Coachella generation, highlighted by cuts off its latest LP, Underneath the Rainbow. The show was among the band's first with guitarist Jack Hines in more than a decade, as he rejoined the band in the last week upon the recent departure of Ian St. Pé. Hines helped lay down rhythms for the band's vocal trip, bassist Jared Swilley, guitarist Cole Alexander and drummer Joe Bradley, who ping-ponged off each other with ease. - [The Waster]
It was an especially hot n' sweaty night at House of Vans on Thursday (7/3) with Atlanta's Black Lips headlining a garage punk lineup that also included Night Birds and Seattle's Night Beats who flew in for this show and had played Baby's All Right the night before. Pictures from the whole evening are in this post.
The next HoV show is this Thursday (7/10) with Gorilla Biscuits, The Bouncing Souls and Turnstile. RSVP is full for that free show. More pics from the 7/3 show below...
