"A visceral, costumed, voodoo-cursed blend of classic R&B and soul traversing the soundscapes of Curtis Mayfield, New Orleans funk, Screamin' Jay Hawkins and James Brown, but laid out in much rockier, pulpier, sweatier terms."--NOW
Some shows are just for fun...and this is one of them. Garage-rockin' psychedelic soul collective King Khan & the Shrines crank out a combo of killer riffs and unhinged stage antics that's guaranteed to start a party. Sounding like Sun Ra meets ? and the Mysterians at a carnival sideshow, this Montreal-Berlin axis nine-piece big band kick out the jams with a contagious, crazed zeal that just plain can't be denied.
Mark Sultan—aka BBQ of King Khan and the BBQ Show fame—will preheat the stage with his scorching opening set.
