Let my trip be yours.

Speaking of Cancelled…

…I was super excited to see …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead yesterday at the new Pool Parties in Williamsburg. Unfortunately, the nasty weather made them cancel the show right before the headliners played. I also missed the openers, Grupo Fantasmo and HEALTH (neither of which I’ve ever heard, but would like to) because of a prior engagement. This meant that I only saw one band: The Black Lips. Now, my first introduction to this band, was the retarded name and album art for their latest release. Then, after confiding this to a friend who liked the band, he played us some and I still wasn’t impressed. Then I saw them live yesterday. Let’s just say, Black Lips are one of the shittiest bands I’ve ever heard. They’re basically just a bunch of wannabe-outlaws still obsessed with being teenagers who play bluesy pop-punk. The music they played all sounded like reworked versions of Ramones, the Who, and/or White Stripes songs; all done in their faux-whiskey-chugging, 16-year-old-boner-inducing image. What a waste of time.

  1. is the new trail of dudes album any good? i thought they seriously jumped the shark with that worlds apart album. but source tags and codes still gives me pleasure.

    the black lips are fun, don’t be a fun nazi.

    they made another album like worlds apart (i like ’em both) but the new one sounds more like old TOD. i like it too.

    as for the black dicks being fun, i’d say they’re about as much fun as a bathtub filled with Zyklon B.
