:: The King Khan & BBQ Show ::
Internationally revered, The King Khan & BBQ Show have released records on labels such as Crypt, Goner, In The Red, and Fat Possum, as well as influencing a variety of other artists. They are an elite powerhouse of top notch doo-wop/psych/r&b/r&r craziness that has been sorely lacking in today’s world of nu-grunge and calculated ‘careers’. In a span of just six years, they released three critically acclaimed albums, a mess of 45s, and toured the world, culminating in Lou Reed asking them to perform at the prestigious Sydney Opera House. They then broke up and went on hiatus. After a three year absence, they played a handful of select shows towards the end of last year and had such a great time, that they are heading back into the belly of the beast for some more!
This is the show to beat!! A real rock'n'roll maelstrom from thee psychedelic death juggernauts. Doo-wop/Psych/Garage/Rock'n'Roll/R&B - you want it, you got it, METAL HEALTH!!! ALL SORTS OF HIJINKS!!! PARTY!
Not to be missed, come and experience the magic for yourself.
:: Bloodshot Bill ::
Bloodshot Bill started playing in his hometown of Montreal, around 1998, with just a guitar and a stomp board. Since then, he has had over 30 releases throughout Europe, USA and Canada - and still tours all these places frequently. He was banned from entering the States for 5 years (2006-2011) and made his first "(wel)comeback" show in USA at the Norton Records 25th Anniversary Weekend, performing alongside such legendary (and killer!) acts such as Andre Williams, The Sonics, 5678's, Mighty Hannibal and The South Bay Surfers. Since 2003 his hair has been slicked with his own brand of grease, "Nice 'n' Greasy", and he plays his guitar through his custom made one-of-a-kind Richtone Amp. He's been in lotsa bands you've never heard of (Hubcaps, Guilloteens, Bootlegs, Hand-Cuffs, Pouteens). Won FME's Coup De Coeur prize in 2007. Released records with Mark "BBQ" Sultan as The Ding- Dongs. Has been in several films & documentaries. Collaborates with King Khan as Tandoori Knights. He's the spokesmen for a hamburger, The Degeue ("disgusting burger" translated). Usually travels alone as a one man band.
