ATLANTA, GA (September 11th, 2013) – Seminal punk rockers and VICE Records artist the Black Lips are hitting the road this fall for a set of select dates which will include a performance as well as a special screening of their new rock and roll feature length movie Kids Like You & Me that shows the punk rockers playing where few western bands have gone before, deep into the Middle East. The band was on a humanitarian rock and roll mission to bridge cultural divides and smash stereotypes with the universal sound of punk rock. The film highlights the flower punk quartet’s life changing journey through the land of the pyramids for a documentary that is both heart-wrenching and soul-churning in the midst of pure cultural chaos. Be sure to come check out a screening followed by a Black Lips wild live performance (full dates below).

Kids Like You & Me, directed by Bill Cody, documents a journey through one of the most exciting regions in the world including three groundbreaking stops in Egypt. (The last known American rock band to play Egypt being The Grateful Dead in 1978!) Get on the bus with Black Lips and their good friends, Lebanese indie rockers, Lazzy Lung. See the people of the Middle East the way they really are. Shopkeepers and restaurant owners. Skaters, graffiti artists and musicians. Revolutionaries and dreamers. Kids like you and me. You’ll never look at the Middle East the same way after seeing this film.
