Simply calling them "garage rock" is kind of limiting their sound, Black Lips have also been branded "flower punk pioneers." It's definitely a high energy show, gonna be good times this Friday (10/18) at the Top Hat! Tickets for Black Lips are $19.50 at the Top Hat, Rockin' Rudy's and online. The opener is Blue Rose Rounders with doors at 8:30 and music starting at 9 p.m.

Black Lips were born of DIY ethic, working their way from sweaty basement shows in Georgia to huge crowds at international music festivals (including a performance at Fun Fun Fun Fest that appears in Terrence Malick’s forthcoming film Song to Song) to tours in such far flung locales as India, Jordan, Cyprus, Egypt, Lebanon, Iraqi Kurdistan, the United Arab Emirates, and many more. Satan’s graffiti or God’s art? vindicates Black Lips for sticking it out through many years of shifting trends and buzz bands; a sonically captivating document that is as creatively unhinged as it is precisely executed, one of the rawest and most expansive albums in the band’s storied history.
