Black Lips Tuesday
Here’s the second video from Arabia Mountain, the new, Mark Ronson-produced album by the Black Lips, set for release on Vice in early June. Though the band is based in Atlanta, parts of the video—the ones that appear to take place in a dive bar—were filmed at the Saturn Bar, a super fun dive bar in New Orleans. My sister Elizabeth, who lives in New Orleans and knows the Black Lips, is in the video. She’s one of the girls in the periphery during the dive bar scenes (look for the girl with the curly hair ... the girl next to her in the white boots is DJ Kristen). A few weeks ago she told me she showed up for the shoot thinking there’d be a whole crowd, but it was just a few folks and some chickens.
