Black Lips - video concert

So, the once sun-baked lo-fi grime punks turned exceptionally honed raucous rockers, Atlanta GA's Black Lips - are not only touring (here in Detroit on 3 /13 , not only releasing a new album (200 Million Thousand! - Vice) - but they're also having a video contest...for this song

"Black Lips - Starting Over"

The band announced the contest over an holiday e-card, providing the chance for fans (...or...whoever really, fan-ship is not a requirement) can submit their own video-interpretations set to this song. The once "flower-punks" partnered through and will be taking submissions through Feb. 15th. And then, their latest opus - 200 Million Thousand - comes out and into the ears of the public on Feb. 24th.
