Photos : Black Lips/Vivian Girls , Benefit show is TONIGHT at RECORD BREAKERS!!!!
We got in Gossip Wolf, and the amazing Keith Herzik from Chicago drew this up!
Flyer by Alejandro Morales!
Black Lips + Vivian Girls hit Logan Square Auditorium last night. I don't get the hate for Vivian Girls new record. It sounds good. It's a little more fresh than the other stuff they've put out. They sing more clearly, with a bit more purpose. It seems in some people's eyes they're damned if they do, damned if they don't.
Black Lips were good. They're always consistently entertaining. It got a little crazy toward the end. Some girl got a foot...stuck in her hair....right before Bad Kids. All of these kids were trying to pull this lodged foot out, and when that song started, I thought something really terrible was going to happen with that whole situation, as everyone went crazy as they always do. I hope she's alright.
Security got on stage, and didn't leave. Black Lips should play some 21+ shows around Chicago here and there. Tween drama.
The benefit show is TONIGHT!!!!
