Turn up the reverb and break out the grunge pedals. The Black Lips are a psychedelic garage punk band with a badass edge. If it’s not the songs about doing drugs and being bad kids that grab your attention, their crazy stage antics will. The Georgia-based band has been vomiting on stage and making out with each other since its formation in 2000. Their ridiculous behavior has gotten them kicked out of clubs all over the world, but also attention from fans who want to hear and see the insanity for themselves. Catch them at Maxwell’s March 21, the Brooklyn Bowl, March 23 or the Bowery Ballroom, March 24. myspace.com/theblacklips.
