    Default Black Lips

    So, uh, who caught the Black Lips? Cole Alexander had an interesting performance near the end of their set, concerning his pants, the ground, and his little guy and guitar.

    Did, uh, anybody else see that?

    hahahaha, this set sounds crazy.

    The Black Lips started off Saturday at Coachella with a bang. The flower-punk band from Atlanta, Georgia decided to pull a Jim Morrison-esque maneuver during their 2:15 set at the Mojave tent. They ended the show with full frontal nudity.

    Throughout their performance, the young audience moshed and crowd surfed with ferocious intensity -- "Time", "Modern Art" and "Dumpster Dive" got particularly out of hand. Dreadlocked punks and little surf rats hit each other as hard as they could. The band tossed beers into the crowd, urging those who caught them to share.

    After jamming their hit "Bad Kids," front man Cole Alexander shed his floppy Southern hat and pretty much everything else he was wearing. He dropped his pants and exposed himself to the screaming crowd, strumming their last licks with his shaft. He danced naked while the Lips beat the shit out of their instruments behind him. For a couple of indecent moments, they had the world by the short and curlies.

    This is the last minute of their set. Including Cole's experiment with no pants!

    One of the highlights of any Coachella for me. Loved all of it, including the guitar/beer fungoes into the crowd.

    Haha, my godfather caught the first beer that they threw out. Miley Cyrus was in the crowd, too, and her friend caught the second one. It was awesome.

    I caught the first beer and slammed it. One of Miley Cyrus' girl friends caught the second and shared it with her. I was cool and didn't snap a shot of her sipping on it. I was too busy pushing the crowd surfers back into GA, so they wouldn't kill themselves being dropped on the VIP barricade. I tried to get security to send a few guys in there, but I guess I didn't get the attension of anyone with any authority, or any common sense.

    Is telling people I shared drinks and a live nude show with Miley Cyrus going to far?

    Haha that's amazing. I wish I could say the same.

    I only got to see their first half of the set and was unable to witness this unfortunately. I was pretty bummed when I heard about it that I missed it.

    I remember seeing Black Lips open for Deerhunter in 09 I believe, and the crowd was fuckin wild, I had never heard them before, and I had just forgotten how rockin they were! There set was perfect and one of the best! The ending was so fuckin rock and roll, never ever seen that before. Then quickly ran over to Azelia Banks who destroyed it on her own as well.

    Really? Regardless, I would be surprised if GV went that route.

    I thought the bands were told to keep their clothes on because it was a family festival. At least that's what King Khan told the crowd in 2010.

    It will be interesting to see if he pulls it out again.
