Mephistopheles has his incarnations, Roky Erickson has his hallucinations, Jim Morrison has his myths and King Khan has been on a one-man, pants-dropping, primitive-rock-fucking, personality-multiplying mission to trump them all. Or so it would seem for the elusive Arish Ahmad Khan, currently touring with Canadian psychobilly Bloodshot Bill (now that a nasty U.S. travel ban has been lifted) under the name Tandoori Knights. If that sounds confusing, fear not, as no one has yet found the words for this kind of howling, hysterical mayhem. Rock & roll will have to do.

Last Time: King Khan appeared in St. Louis in October 2010 for a full-on, hail-to-the-freaks revue at 2720 Cherokee. This time, expect fewer dancers onstage, but just as many on the Off Broadway floor.
