They said it could never be done. They said the hate was just too severe, the wounds too sebaceous. They said Mark Sultan was working as a spy at Sunmaid Raisins and that King Khan was crossing the world taped to three swans. They were wrong. Absolutely legendary and crucial REAL rock’n’roll recording artists/magicians/nuts, ‘THE KING KHAN & BBQ SHOW’ are back! With releases on labels like Crypt, Goner, In The Red, and Fat Possum, KK&BS are an elite powerhouse of top TOP notch doo-wop/psych/r&b/r&r craziness that has been sorely lacking in today’s world of grunge worship and 10 month ‘careers’. This is one of the best rock’n’roll bands of this century, and you’ll be kicking your own ass and face if you miss it. Charlotte, NC’s PAINT FUMES only have a 7” and one LP under their belt, but Jesu Cristu, these guys rip and blast through songs so wicked they’re sure to hit your brain with a hammer, stirring up all sorts of shakes and twitches when you see em live. PAINT FUMES are supreme scuzz and they pack in enough wail and feedback to make all the kids go crazy on the dance floor for more ballsy garage-punk you can’t help but huff. It’s not often we get to host great n grimy rock from Greece, but tonight Athens-based BAZOOKA come to our stage to get wet with their unruly brand of hard-hitting, gutter punk. Their 7” EP out on Slovenly is destined-for-classic status – with a name and opening track called I Wanna Fuck All The Girls in My School, how could it not be??
