Balls-out garage rockers and ATL natives the Black Lips take us out for a night we’ll never…remember.

With a population of 540,000, the ATL manages an impressive 89,000 Google hits for bars—one drinking den for every six people. Add 13,000 coeds and 1,500 strip clubs and you get the ultimate bang-for-your-buck burg (pun kind of intended), which is why Georgia’s capital is our No. 1. And besides that Atlanta has the seedy underbelly we love in our ’80s movies...and in real life. To this end we enlisted Atlanta’s most hardcore partyers to put together the ultimate night of debauchery. Known for outrageous stage antics (think blood, vomit, and flaming guitars), the Black Lips (guitarists Ian Saint Pé and Cole Alexander, drummer Joe Bradley, and bassist Jared Swilley) are the perfect guides through the city’s nastiest nooks. On the eve of the band’s world tour supporting their new album, Arabia Mountain, we got in the car with them and rolled out.
