Black Lips 

March 23

10 p.m. Monday

One Eyed Jacks, 615 Toulouse St., 569-8361;

Atlanta's Black Lips may not know what it means to miss New Orleans, but the regular visitors sure know how to mess with the city's No. 1 antagonist. On Good Bad Not Evil, the garage-rockers' 2007 breakthrough, "O Katrina!" knocks the wind right out of the hurricane, reducing the killer storm to the level of a bitter ex via cigarette-burn bass lines and Cole Alexander's snotty-and-snide vocals ("O Katrina, why you got to be mean?"). Former Circle Bar besiegers and Louie Fest headliners, the Lips run in the same circles as kings Khan and Louie — fellow practitioners of blues/punk dementia — and the group's five-album catalog follows a similarly pockmarked dirt road: tortured tracheas and surf guitars chasing 4/4 time signatures on trucker speed. February's 200 Million Thousand (Vice) offers no detours and no apologies. Atlanta power-pop outfit Gentleman Jesse and His Men opens. Tickets $10 in advance, $12 at the door. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
