The Black Lips return to Union Transfer tonight, just over two years after they melted down the same Spring Garden Street venue in April of 2014. The Atlanta garage punk rockers are approaching the midway point in a spring tour that will take them overseas once they finish up the U.S. portion of the dates this week. No new material since 2014’s Underneath the Rainbow, but expect a nice mix from their eight LPs dating back to 2003. New York’s Hank Wood & The Hammerheads will play in support. For all the details on tonight’s all ages show, head over to the XPN Concert Calendar. Continue reading →
