With stage smoke leaving a layer of haze in the Firebird on Thursday night, the the Black Lips combed through the fog and unleashed their in your face garage rock style for an appreciative crowd.

With each song it seemed the band was picking up their own intensity, trying to get the young rowdies to be a bit more of a rebellious audience; however, save for the few cans of sprayed beer and the occasional crowd surfer, it was a relatively tame show.  With that said, the Black Lips were an impressive bunch.  They turned it up.  They cranked out thick and dark rock and roll. They interacted with their fans.  And they put on a pretty solid show.

Opening the evening were the Vivian Girls, who showcased a knack for writing songs that draw you in slowly and then hook you with their let-it-all-go attitude and style.  The female 3 piece featured a very raw guitar sound  that is awesomely dirty sounding at times, and then clean and sweet just a few notes later.  Not afraid to move across the stage and use the space to their advantage, the Vivian Girls may look like sweethearts, but their sound will punch you in the mouth without thinking twice.
