Hallelujah! Yes, 2010 will see the anticipated return of the Atlanta, Georgia natives, Black Lips. Aiming to trump the wild times had on their sold-out, inaugural Australian tour back in 2007, they’re bringing a whole lot more sweat and swagger – not mention the tracks off of their latest album, 200 Million Thousand.
When they were here last they ripped the roof off of the Tote in Melbourne and could pretty much lay claim to starting each and every good vibe that rolled through that Summer. We’re kinda both scared and excited to see them back. Rolling Stone Magazine have uttered the words “Lips are one of the best live bands in America” and we believe them, having been witness to the Lip’s notoriously manic live shows. Can we handle their amazingness? Is that even a word?
Unpredictable, infectious and downright charming, Black Lips play Laneway Festival 2010 as well as their very own headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne. Show details below.
