Black Lips coming to the Orpheum in Ybor City for Tampa Pro 2012




Not to be confused with the Black Kids, Flaming Lips or Black Keys, Atlanta's Black Lips have a reputation for wild antics, both onstage and off. We're talking casual nakedness, onstage vomiting and urination, guitar-smashing, plenty of drugs ... the usual. Spin magazine is a huge fan, which is how they ended up on the cover last year, aiming a flaming guitar at the camera.

This is why the raucous garage punk band is a perfect fit to headline the biggest annual party at the Skatepark of Tampa, Tampa Pro 2012.

The Black Lips and The People's Temple will perform March 23 at Orpheum for the annual Tampa Pro party. Tickets to the show are $10(plus fees) via Daddy Kool. For tickets, click here. For the full details on Tampa Pro 2012, click here.
