Black Lips @ El Rey Theatre, 2/14/08
Excitement in the crowd was palpable; fans climbed the stage at least fifteen times. A relentless bunch, much like Black Lips who tour incessantly. This special Valentine’s Day show at the El Rey was the one L.A. had been waiting for, since their last show in October was cut short. The bros even came out– Kevin “Spanky” Long was in the audience along with an eclectic fan base that mirrors Black Lips’ music. You can catch them next on the same day Jack Johnson [controversially] graces Coachella’s stage.
