Also, one of my favorite garage acts, like, EVER -- like, seriously -- is coming to Boston this Saturday, and I sent an email to the band to ask what time they were going on and everything.
Anyway, a couple minutes later, some dude from Vice Records calls me and says: "The Black Lips have signed to Vice. Look for the record in the new year." Ha! Vice Records rocks and so do the Black Lips, so this was a nice early Halloween present.
