When they were here last they ripped the roof off of the Tote in Melbourne and could pretty much lay claim to starting each and every good vibe that rolled through that Summer. We’re kinda both scared and excited to see them back. Rolling Stone Magazine have uttered the words "Lips are one of the best live bands in America" and we believe them, having been witness to the Lip’s notoriously manic live shows. Can we handle their amazingness? Is that even a word?

They’ve got more to celebrate on our shores, too. They are about to release an album withKing Khan & BBQ(one half of which is playing Falls Festival NYE with The Shrines). It’s a super-group entitled ‘The Almighty Defenders’ and it’s crazy gospel-garage. They’ve also collaborated of late with the illustrious GZA of Wu Tang!

Unpredictable, infectious and downright charming, Black Lips play Laneway Festival 2010 as well as their very own headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne. Show details below.
