After Dark

Best Local Rock Act: The Black Lips

Staff Pick

Garbled garagists THE BLACK LIPS are a beautiful disaster spreading bruised pop like a social disease. Like everything about the Brian Jonestown Massacre, everything about the Black Lips music (and the band’s venue and label, Die Slaughterhaus) is DIY and art-damaged — frayed or faded — yet takes on supersaturated supersonics. This is surf rock clawing from a froth of psychedelic phlegm dripping from Spanish moss. On stage, the chaos is fluid — and may even spread some fluids. The Black Lips may not technically play rock best, but they will rock you best.
