Black Lips Play Detroit, Don't Pee, Will Return in a Couple Weeks
I saw Atlanta's Black Lips at Detroit Bar last night, and it was a cool hour of some pretty fun punk ("flower punk," as they call it, whatever that may mean). They, of course, have a reputation for a pretty wild stage show (peeing, vomiting, man-on-man kissing), but none of that was on display last night--though the crowd did get a little wooly at times. Guess they've "matured" past that (as reports indicate), or maybe they just didn't feel the urge. You gotta feel it, y'know.
The show was a success, for sure, with the place packed and nearly sold out--so much of a success, that they're coming back to the same venue on May 3 (just a day after their show at the Glass House on May 2).
