Coachella: Friday In Photos

New Live Black Lips – “Lock & Key”

Black Lips are one of those bands best experienced live, but if the real-life sweat ‘n’ booty shaking’s not possible, hows about diggin’ into a recording of a live performance? Even if you’re answer was no, here’s a recording from the Hotlanta quartet recorded at Amoeba in Hollywood this past July. Swampy!
