It doesn't happen often, but once in a while, a non-mainstream band comes to Dubai and the non-mainstream music fans in Dubai get excited and turn up in full force.
This happened last September (apologies for the belated update) when we had The Black Lips and Lazzy Lung visting our shores, part of their Middle East tour.
The concert took place in The Music Room and it was fun, but the sound system was not up to standard.
Here's a video that was released a few days ago showing highlights of The Black Lips tour in the region, featuring Erbil, Dubai and Cairo.
The Dubai gig involved a mosh pit and crowd surfing, but I managed to stay safe and sound on the side of the stage, and took some of these photos. I know these aren't your typical concert photos, but hey, who needs typical?
