'my first time seeing black lips live and i never thought i'd see a group of energetic white teens mosh to a song about hurricane katrina.' - eric p
"Was anyone else shocked by the NYPD? I saw them arresting 2 hipsters, and the cops were quite aggressive and violent, like one guy was put down, and the other one had his arm twisted in his back and it looked painful. I am sure there were some kind of legit reasons for taking these hipsters away, but not so violently!!!" [pilou]
Unlike Trail of Dead, but like HEALTH (and Grupo Fantasma) the Black Lips played a set at the JellyNYC Pool Party at the Williamsburg Waterfront on Sunday (7/26). Black Lips return to NYC in September to open for Yo La Tengo at Roseland Ballroom. Tickets are on sale.
In related news, the Black Lips are also now members of the Almighty Defenders supergroup. More pictures from the Watefront, the new video for "Drugs", and all tour dates, below...
