I would be very much remiss—and, like, fired—if I didn’t mention this whole Wavves-Black Lips thing from Friday night, so let’s just get it out of the way early, and agree to never speak of it again.

On Friday night, after a Wavves show at Market Hotel and a Black Lips show opening up for Yo La Tengo at Webster Hall, members of both bands found themselves at Williamsburg bar Daddy’s. Black Lips singer/bassist Jared Swilley launched a verbal attack on Wavves’ Nathan Williams’ after his much-publiced on-stage meltdown back in June, and the whole thing finally came to a head at the bar this past weekend. Bottles were thrown, punches were thrown, blood was shed.

Wavves dude had this to say:

“Talking shit about me on the Internet is one thing, I can handle that all day but when some dude is just looking for a fight at 4 in the morning talking shit to my face and his girlfriend is spitting in the face of all my friends it’s a whole different story. I have no problem wih black lips or anybody else that i havent met but jared has been at me every chance he had. I just want to play music and have fun. It was unfortunate that it escalated to that point but he got what was coming to him.”

Then Black Lips dude responded by calling Wavves dude a faggot a bunch of times and threatening to destroy his face, “nasty style,” whatever that means. Here, read:

“First of all, I just wanna say that Wavves was NOT involved in that fight. That faggot didn’t even touch me.

I’ve never “come after” that kid, it wasn’t four a.m., that wasn’t my girlfriend, no one was spitting, and I didn’t attack him. I don’t give a shit about that kid and his music.

What happened was, after we finished our set I went to Daddy’s with some friends and saw that faggot from Wavves talking to a photographer friend of mine. The only thing I did was walk up to him and say “You’re that faggot from Wavves and I don’t like you”. He smiled a bit but didn’t say anything.

After that, I went outside and saw their tour manager hanging around with some guys. They started getting all chuckles with me and so I told them I wasn’t gonna have it. After that, Wavves tour manager hit me square in the face with a bottle. Blood started pouring out and six dudes fucking started kicking me until I blacked out.

All I remember is getting hit with the bottle and my friends dragging me to another bar. They wrapped my head up until I looked like a Confederate soldier.

So yeah, I lost the fight.

I also missed three flights. I’ve been in the airport all day having stewardesses cleaning my head because it kept cracking open. You can’t go on board if you’re bleeding.

Bottom line is that faggot from Wavves didn’t even hit me. Never touched me. And he should’ve, cuz he had a free shot.

He’s coming to Atlanta October 3rd and we’re gonna get ugly on him. We’re gonna destroy their van, we’re gonna destroy their faces, we’re gonna get crazy on em’. Nasty style.

  • The fact that he continuously calls the Wavves dude a faggot and then threatens to destroy his van, face, get crazy on him nasty style seems sorta– well– how do I say it– sexually charged.

    Also, when they got all chuckles on him, and he wouldn’t have it. I suppose he meant by getting his ass kicked then responding on the internet. Badass.

    The Black Lips suck. Would have rocked if they did it in 1964. Lame now.

  • This is really important enough to write an article about? And the use of “the dude from”…really?
