MONDAY 16 MAY
De Verdieping (Trouw), 20.30, €15
While the teenage angst antics might have waned a little over the past few years, the full-on 1960s garage-nugget-punk energy continues to thrive in the Black Lips. Live, this self-proclaimed ‘flower-punk’ band from Atlanta, Georgia delivers the sweaty goods and more. Their unbound energy and obvious love of music quite literally drip from every pore and out onto their adoring public. It’s barely contained chaos delivered with care. And, who knows, maybe – just maybe – the nudity or chicken or fireworks or flaming guitars or vomit might just make an appearance again. Not that they’re needed anymore.
Oh, and we have tickets to give away too. Wanna see the Black Lips at Trouw for free? Email firstname.lastname@example.org with Black Lips in the subject. Tell us your fave punk stunt and throw in some handy contact details too.Tweet
