The Black Lips NXNE, Toronto, ON June 17 to 21, 2009
The Black Lips live reputation precedes the band wherever they go. After all, how many bands are banned from India? So it was a little disconcerting to hear the group were playing the decidedly family-friendly Yonge and Dundas Square. And while they kept it in their pants, they did have half a dozen fans dancing on stage with them before the night was out, much to the chagrin of security. Oh yeah, they actually sounded great as well, even having King Khan & BBQ Show join them onstage, hopefully a sign of things to come from their new LP together.
