Atlanta garage rockers Black Lips are back in Los Angeles and ready to make the El Rey Theatre tremble with the sounds of their new album, Underneath The Rainbow. The follow-up to 2011’s Arabia Mountain LP has 12 tracks and is as gritty, bold and fun as their last work.
Production work by Patrick Carney (Black Keys), as well as help from Dap Kings music director Tommy Brenneck took their lo-fi garage rock in a new direction adding more pop elements while keeping their cheeky essence. It’s still a little 60s, a little country, and a lot of rock.
Are you excited yet?
That night the Lips will share the stage with their buds, The Coathangers, an all-female punk group also from Atlanta. If you haven’t heard of these girls you’re in for a killer treat!
These girls, with lashing guitars and brutal, stomping drums are going to make your heart throb. Their in-your-face attitude and playful energy are going to charm your pants off.
I can’t wait.
El Rey Theater – Friday, Mar 21, 2014 8:00 p.m. Ages: All Ages. $22.00
They will also be performing at Burgerama at The Observatory in Santa Ana – Saturday, Mar 22, 2014 12:00 p.m. $35.
