New Black Lips Single: “Sick Of You”

Featuring two Arabia Mountain leftovers, “Sick Of You” and “Dance With You”. You can download the latter (HERE). Not quite a top Lips number in my book… maybe it will take some growing. Who knows?

Last year around this time the Lips were trekking across the US. It doesn’t appear they will be doing that anytime soon. June or July, maybe if we get lucky. Otherwise, not for a while! Here is a link to their tour schedule for the next few months: http://www.vicerecords.com/vicerecords/tours.php

Show: Arctic Monkeys/Black Keys @ TD Garden – 3/7/12

Making their way to the top of the venue chain are the Black Keys. They last played Boston in 2010 at a sold-out Bank of America Pavilion. The Arctic Monkeys themselves have climbed through the ranks and will play their first Boston arena show as the opening act. Is this a must see event for a pretty big Arctics fan? I’ve never seen a concert at the Garden and, in fact, have just one arena show to my credit — Bob Dylan & Elvis Costello at the Ryan Center in Rhode Island. It could very well be a first.
