The Black Lips and The King Khan & BBQ Show at Irving Plaza and Music Hall of Williamsburg

King Kahn @ Music Hall of Wiilliamsburg

Back in June, my friend John had an extra ticket to see King Khan and the Shrines at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, which he gave to me in exchange for some favor or another. (Or maybe he owed me money. I don’t remember.) King Khan and the Shrines put on a terrific, butt-shaking show. No one was standing still, and King Khan (nee Mark Sultan) commanded everyone’s attention including getting everyone to put their hands in the air. It wasn’t James Brown on the TAMI Show, but it was darn close1.

King Khan returns to New York, with the BBQ Show, for two nights opening for the Black Lips at Irving Plaza. The show is tomorrow night, September 30, and you know you want to go.

  1. The TAMI Show was a live show recorded forty years ago next month in Santa Monica, California that was released theatrically at the end of 1964. James Brown’s performance was so electrifying that the Rolling Stones, who followed Brown, reportedly said that choosing to follow Brown was the worst decision of their careers. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T.A.M.I._Show
