It’ll be a punk-rock sock-hop at Casbah as Black Lips re-visit Good, Bad, not Evil on the Middletown mainstay. Good, Bad topped most rock crits’ year-end lists in '07 for its pump’d-pop take on trad American blues rock. The gritty Atlanta quartet killed the room last year. The Lips share the stage with Portland garage band Pierced Arrows and basement punks Beehive and the Barracudas for show of the week.... Else: Louis XIV will play an early-evening in-store at M-Theory before heading down to House of Blues, where they’ll check in with the Editors and Hot Hot Heat.... Boogie-n-blues busker Diablo Dimes and dance troupe Sultry Savage Burlesque revive roaring '20s at Beauty Bar.
