Tempting as it may be to write off the Black Lips as one more blues-rock band with “black” in its name, consider this: creating super avant-garde music is commendable, but so is the ability to breathe new life into classic genres.

The Lips are as deft at this as the (Black) Keys are, and pull from more styles (surf, blues, grunge and punk) with an alacrity similar to Blitzen Trapper.

The Black Lips

9 p.m. Friday, March 28, at Neumos, 925 E. Pike St., Seattle; $16 advance (206-709-9467 or www.neumos.com).
