Black Lips at HoV

The 2015 Gigawatts Festival is upon us, bringing 80+ bands to The Wick, the adjacent outdoor venue The Well and smaller nearby club Our Wicked Lady tonight through Sunday (7/24-26).

Things kick off at 4 PM today, and Friday's lineup includes Black Lips and A Place to Bury Strangers at The Well, Liturgy and Cerebral Balsy at The Wick and Surfbort and Heaven's Gate at Our Wicked Lady.

Other bands throughout the weekend include Braid, Beach Slang, Swearin' and more. Single day tickets ($30) and three-day passes ($60) are still available and full daily lineups and set times are listed below.

Speaking of Black Lips, frontman Cole Alexander will be DJing a party thrown by Andy Animal and Sailor Jerry at Williamsburg's Black Bear Bar on Sunday (7/26). There will be live performances from  Daddy Long Legs, Bloodshot Bill, Birdcloud, Apache, and Alana Amram & the Rough Jems. That show is $12 at the door and the party's flyer is below.
