King Khan & The BBQ Show NXNE, Toronto, ON June 17 to 21, 2009

As was expected, King Khan and partner in crime, BBQ Show put on what was one of the most theatrical and fun shows of NXNE. Donning their onstage costumes, the pair looked like cheap knockoffs of Johnny Carson's Carnac the Magnificent character. The duo blasted through garage rock and punk-rock doo-wop tunes and had Black Lips' Cole Alexander return the favour from earlier in the night and join them onstage. Never one to simply show up, play and leave, this was one of several shows the band played over the weekend.
