LOOK: Black Lips Become Diplomats In Cairo During Middle East Tour Documentary
By Staff on December 18, 2012
Towards the beginning of summer, Atlanta's finest, shameless rockers, Black Lips, announced their plans of touring the Middle East in September. Their show in Cairo fell on International Peace Day and is now featured in the documentary You Know, For Kids, directed by Los Angeles filmmaker Bill Cody.
Though you wouldn't think to peg these scandalous dudes as diplomats, Cole Alexander reveals in the doc's trailer, below: "I kind of feel like we're almost diplomats for the people—like, we're just regular people and we share music."
Peep the clip now, to see live footage of their throwback hit, "O Katrina!"
This may be the most normal we've ever seen the Black Lips—whose badass lives are featured in FILTER 42— but don't worry, they're still wicked deep down. If you want to donate to the Black Lips film, click HERE!
If you find yourself in NOLA for New Year's Eve, and have yet to come up with some plans to kick off 2013, head over to One Eyed Jacks and celebrate with the Black Lips.
