The Calcutta explored the Bowery Ballroom in New York City two nights ago with the Black Lips.  If you’ve heard that these guys put on a wild show, well, they do. The rumors you’ve heard are true.  Guitarist Cole Alexander even played his guitar with his penis at one point. Yes, their shows get like that. Below are a few shots from the show. Sorry, no dick photos.

Ian Saint Pe gave a well deserved beer to a fan who was apart of the group that did not stop moving once the entire show.
