King Khan & BBQ Show Bring Good Times to The Bowery BallroomNovember 22nd, 2016
Montreal garage-rock duo King Khan & BBQ Show—manic frontman Arish “King” Khan and guitarist Mark “BBQ” Sultan—have been expertly mixing punk, soul, rock and doo wop into their own unique sound for more than a decade. Their fourth studio album, Bad News Boys (stream it below), came out last year. “At its core, Bad News Boys is a joyous celebration of all things rock and roll by two guys who seem to have it running in their blood,” according to Drowned in Sound. Not to be outdone, Glide Magazine added, “Bad News Boys is hilarious, beautiful and totally badass from start to finish…. King Khan is a force of nature no matter what he does, but there’s something truly uninhibited and unself-conscious about when he works with BBQ.” Fortunately, they’re working together on tour right now and you can see King Khan & BBQ Show (above, doing “Alone Again” live in studio for KEXP FM) tonight at The Bowery Ballroom. And as an added bonus, the Gartrells and Stompin’ Riff Raffs open the show.
