MyOpenBar, the free-booze guide co-run by our very own camera-killing correspondent Rebecca Smeyne, had their CMJ fete on Thursday night, way the hell out in Bushwick. The Muslims, Vivian Girls, and Women starred; Hotlanta’s Black Lips and their gut-showing bro King Khan showed up, stayed late, and King Khan even guested on a few songs with this cantankerous Swing State punk band LiveFastDie. Apparently these lasses take that last part very seriously: the guitarist clowned a Vice affiliate in the head, who then gushed blood furiously. But it’s all in good punk-rock fun because Vice guy’s still alive and bragging about it on the interwebs. The cops also came and left.

Also, far less interesting, but noteworthy nonetheless: there was almost a mosh pit for Vivian Girls!

P.S. Photos from that night of the Black Lips touching tongues over here.

LiveFastDie take their name very seriously, there with King Khan
