Artist of the Day: The Black Lips


There is a big music festival going on June 25th-28th called AthFest, in case you didn’t already know. Formed in Atlanta, Georgia, The Black Lips will be headlining the outside main stage on Friday, June 26th. So what’s the big deal and why are The Black Lips special? Well aside from their current tour, which spans the globe from Asia to Europe, the Black Lips have been scrutinized (even banned from playing in India) and cherished for their antics on stage, which includes nudity, vomiting, urination and band members kissing each other. Remember the funk/punk act out of California in the early 80’s that included Anthony Kiedis, who did some of the same? Oh yeah, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are pretty well known, such might be the same for this act out of ATL. Be sure to check The Black Lips out in Athens in June and their new release of The Almighty Defenders.
