The Black Lips @ Pitchfork

blacklipspitchfork @AndyShore I had heard going into Pitchfork that the Black Lips were a crazy band that was a spectacle to be seen onstage. Their Wikipedia page says they are known for vomiting, urination, nudity, band members kissing, Power Wheels races onstage, fireworks, chickens and flaming guitars. Thus, I opted to shoot them over the National on Saturday night. The band took the stage more than 20 minutes late, and the photographers filed into the pit.

 

Before I knew it, the first song was coming to an end. Their guitar player raised up his guitar as if an offering to the gods of rock and then smashed it to pieces. One song in. Unfortunately, that was as entertained as I got during their set. The Black Lips are loud for the sake of being loud and not my cup of tea. Before too long I had enough and decided to give the National another chance.
