Atlanta's best hit a town near you this spring


Atlanta rabblerousers and general menaces to society Black Lips announced plans for more touring in 2010, ostensibly to support last year’s excellent 200 Million Thousand LP (Vice). Let’s hope they can avoid the dust they kicked up in India and actually finish this tour. Widely considered one of the best live bands in the world, I am most definitely not missing this show. Omaha’s Box Elders will be opening beginning March 17th in Charlotte, NC.

Full set of Tour Dates after the Jump

If you haven’t heard Black Lips and want a good idea of what they’re all about, peep the live show below recorded for Alabama Public Television’s We Have Signal, where bassist/vocalist Jared Swiley discusses (around the 11 minute mark) their misadventures and eventual fleeing from India to Berlin, where they met up with partners in crime King Khan and BBQ (check our interview with BBQ for their take on  the caper). For even more Black Lips, watch Current TV’s Tour Stop also after the Jump
