The first time I ever saw the Black Lips was two years ago at the Bowery Ballroom in New York City. I had never heard of them, but I was in NYC for a few days so my friends  and I decided to check them out. We definitely were not prepared for the craziness that went down that night: band members giving crowd members beers, band members walking on the hands of the crowd and the guitarist whipping his dick out and playing guitar with it. Needless to say, it was wild.

Last night the Atlanta band played the Trocadero and it was crazy, but not THAT crazy. They played an hour set with some new songs off their upcoming record Arabia Mountain mixed with old songs. The band and crowd were on the same energy level all night, in particular guitarist Cole Alexander(the one who whipped his dick out in NYC). He even threw a Coor Light into the crowd but the security guard quickly took it away. That caused the band to go on a hilarious rant about how they and the crowd were allowed to drink whenever they wanted to. All in all, the Black Lips put on a great show in their signature rowdy fashion. Check out the photos below..
