Black Lips at the Black Sheep
The Ramones are not dead. Neither are The Standells, or even ? and the Mysterians. They live on in the clean-cut Atlanta bash-n-mash antics of The Black Lips, who played Monday night at The Black Sheep in Colorado Springs. Perfectly executed, four-part-harmony stupid garage rock is non-stop fun. Line of the night from Cole Alexander, during banter with a loud audience member: "Look, we're from the South, we have centuries of experience in moral bravado, which is something you ADD-addled mountain people will never understand." Rock on.
