Black Lips Israel trip featured on VBS

August 20, 2007  |  4:09pm

Fresh off a recent strip club gig, Atlanta's garage marauders, Black Lips, are being featured on the Vice-Records-helmed online broadcasting network (with Spike Jonze as creative director, no less), VBS, this week. The five-part series, "Black Lips in Israel," began today, and so far features the band playing "the biggest Israeli radio station," visiting a strip mall, eating "top-notch hummus" and camping near the Sea of Galilee. And that's just part one (which can be viewed here)! One can only imagine what happens in parts two through five. At least, that is, until those parts are unveiled later this week. At that point, one can watch them. Obviously.

ANYWAY...

In the meantime, the band keeps on keepin' on. Having just landed in England, Black Lips will play a series of UK dates beginning August 30 before returning to the states for many more. That means all you American readers will have to live with videos of the band in Israel until mid-September. Life is rough sometimes.
