King Khan & the Shrines Bring the Party to Music Hall of Williamsburg

June 6th, 2014

With high-energy live shows, shake-your-ass music and wacky stage antics (ask Lindsay Lohan about the often scantily clad frontman), King Khan & the Shrines have been a cult phenomenon for more than a decade. The band has been laying waste to stages from Coachella to SXSW with their unique sound—the musical intersection of garage rock, psychedelia, R&B and soul. They released their eighth full-length, Idle No More (stream it below), last year, and in giving the album a B+, the A.V. Club says it “is as much of a party as anything the Shrines have released. But it’s one that anticipates, and morbidly worships, the hangover that’s about to come.” And while the LP is great to listen to, the best way to experience King Khan & the Shrines (above, playing “No Regrets” for KEXP FM) is in person, which you should do tomorrow night at Music Hall of Williamsburg.

(King Khan returns as the garage-punk duo King Khan & the BBQ Show to open for the Black Lips at Music Hall of Williamsburg on 10/1.)
