Logan Square Auditorium, Chicago, IL
Atlanta's BLACK LIPS have been called many things – garage, revival, goofballs, bad kids, outlaws, flower punks – and since their first release back in 2003 on Bomp! the group has toyed with all of these influences and reputations. Their 2011 LP on Vice Records, Arabia Mountain, was their first with a producer, the one and only MARK RONSON (DURAN DURAN, AMY WINEHOUSE, LILY ALLEN, KAISER CHIEFS). Pitchfork praised, “Arabia Mountain’s chiseled production and considerably tighter songcraft provides a better forum for showcasing the band’s subversive sense of humor. The best songs here play up the dichotomy between their retro sound and modern preoccupations,” further proving these bad kids have not given up the fight to create messily awesome tunes. THE LIPS' new album, Underneath The Rainbow, is out March 18 on Vice and this time around the band is taking dead aim at their southern roots, adding some country-fried buffoonery to their unhinged wild side. NATURAL CHILD is a rock’n’roll band from Nashville, TN who writes rock’n’roll music that sounds like it was run over by a tractor and re-inflated with pot smoke. Hellbent on finding the next beer, bong or girl to suck on, these three boys are about as rockin’ as a band can get and their recently-released Dancin' With Wolves is out courtesy of the unflinchingly-cool Burger Records. Taking their foot off the gas pedal to enjoy the easy-breazy country-tinged vibes, NATURAL CHILD are channeling their southern roots more than ever while continuing to sound great, through good times and bad. Your boys in FOOTBALL are back in town – after all, half the band doesn't live here anymore – and they’re ready to blast you away into the “dying-zone.” Featuring members of A/V MURDER, BASEBALL FURIES, THE PONYS, FRANCE HAS THE BOMB, LUSTRE KING, TIGHT PHANTOMZ, THE TYRADES, WHITE SAVAGE and more, FOOTBALL’s live power is strong enough to make your head want to explode from sheer brutal awesomeness. The finest GET DRUNK DJs will be spinning the best rock, punk, and slimey garage throughout the night, so show up early and have all the good times.
