Black Lips @ Echoplex, 10/20/07
What would a Black Lips show be without unanticipated incidence? Err…not a Black Lips show. When I saw them in January it was singer/guitarist Cole Alexander dropping his pants, tonight at the echoplex it was having the plug pulled midway through the show. Confused fans remained inside chanting for their return, meanwhile equipment was already being carried out to their vans.
Apparently guitarist Ian St. Pe dropped a full beer bottle on the ground and that was enough to anger echoplex owner and abruptly end the show. See comment #5 below on what actually went down, which was verified by the band’s reps. –Ed. The band have toured nonstop in support of their latest release, Good Bad, Not Evil, and are likely to return to L.A. sometime. After fans cleared out, Black Lips hung outside until the early a.m. A fight even broke out in the street at some point; it seems adventure surrounds Black Lips.
