Tonight! The Black Lips, The Clientele, And Sondre Lerche
ATL tough guys the Black Lips (that's them to the left) holler unpolished, unapologetic garage punk at Brooklyn Bowl, and with additional, extra-musical shenanigans involving bodily fluids and nudity, how could you miss it? Or, bask in the afterglow at the Bowery Ballroom as London quartet the Clientele dish out hazy, Beatles-esque pop bolstered by Spanish guitars, the occasional trumpet fanfare, and bereaved strings. And don't forget Sondre Lerche, the baby-faced Norwegian, who brings together acoustic guitar, heart-throb vocals, and grandiose orchestral influences at City Winery.
