According to a Facebook event page, King Khan -- who never showed up for his show with BBQ Show last November at Off Broadway because their tour manager was arrested -- will be playing at 2720 Cherokee on Sunday, October 3 with the Shrines. Gentlemen Jesse and His Men are also on the bill. Tickets are $15 (there's a $3 minor surcharge), the show is 18+ and the show's at 9 p.m. Who's in the Shrines, by the way?
The line-up includes 60 year-old Chicago-born, Ron Streeter (the live-percussionist of Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, and many other Soul-Legends), a horn section consisting of Simon Wojan (the mastermind behind Kranky Records recording artists Cloudland Canyon), Ben Ra (Germany's John Coltrane), and famous French rockabilly saxophonist Big Fred Rollercoaster. The rhythm section of the Sensational Shrines has been called "a German/French version of the Freak Brothers".
Yeah. Buy your tickets early for this one.
