King Khan & the Shrines/Giorgio Murderer/Shitbox Jimmy

When: Fri., June 17, 9 p.m. 2016

Ruler, mystic, or priest? King Khan is part political activist, part spiritual guru, and all rock ‘n’ roll royalty. Known for his many garage rock reincarnations, including his collaboration with Mark Sultan called the King Khan and BBQ Show, Khan’s Shrines resurrect the sounds of the ’60s through a combination of soul, R&B, and psychedelia. The group includes Ron Streeter, former percussionist for Stevie Wonder and Curtis Mayfield, as well as tenor saxophonist Torben Wesche, who’s regarded as the “John Coltrane of Germany.” Regrettably, Kahn’s guitar prowess does not have a place in this group, but this only frees him up to more fully execute his captivating sorcery as a live performer: the man shuffles and jiggles with the energy of Little Richard.
