The Black Lips were one of the sought after shows at this year’s Scion Garage Fest in Portland Oregon. Musically they were a very tight unit and they were playing to a thirsty crowd who were lapping it up and moshing and surfing as hard and rowdy as they had for previous acts. The band also had a big “under age” group of fans as this was an all ages event and they were well represented for the Black Lips show.
We left while the band was in full swing so we could grab some good seats for the King Khan and BBQ Show across the road. Unfortunately in these type of festivals you have to make some hard choices and sometimes they are not always the best ones but we feel that we did right – the festival gods were with us.
