The best artists are either at work in the studio making new music, on tour, or trying to mix both. It’s about staying busy in this business, the infamous “game”, and with music, you allow yourself to go where the music takes you. Or bring your music to where it can be. The Black Lips just started a tour of the Middle East and have added Egypt to the tour itinerary. These shows will also feature help Lazzy Lung, a Lebanese band that will open for them throughout the tour. Along the way they’ll meet up with 050 Band and Faking It. I immediately asked myself if this tour is being documented in any way and the Vice music channel Noisey is recording everything for visual posterity, while one of these shows will be recorded and broadcast on Sirius XMU.
