XXX Black Lips to play Atlanta strip joint XXX

August 1, 2007  |  12:00am

Atlanta’s seediest strip club, the Clermont Lounge, doesn’t need a versatile calendar. Tuesday is karaoke night, and Saturday the cover charge bumps to $10 for D.J. Romeo Cologne, “licensed funktician.”

“You all know damn well that we rarely book shows at the Clermont Lounge,” states a recent MySpace advertisement. “The only folks who can get a gig here have got to be fucking amazing.”

Apparently, the city’s own Black Lips are up to par. On August 16, the group will join the Supersonics at the infamous venue - perhaps atop what Wikipedia describes as the “single stripper's stage … located in the middle of a circular bar.”

Clermont legend Blondie may be a tough act to follow: according to a review on yelp.com, she “will chug a PBR and crush the can with her massive jugs.” Pretty damn rock ‘n’ roll.

Black Lips will soon tour to promote the release of Good Bad Not Evil, out Sept. 11 on Vice Records. Check the links below for more dates.
