Now, we could tell you about Mark Sultan, BBQ’s past in bands like Les Sexareenos or The Spaceshits.
We could tell you about King Khan’s pseudo-celebrity in Europe, his own past in The Spaceshits, or his Sensational Shrines. But you probably wouldn’t give a shit.
So let’stalk about the real nitty gritty – The King Khan & BBQ Show. Two guys. One smashing snare, bass drum and tambourine with his bare feet, molesting his guitar and singing like a possessed angel.

The other spinning and howling like a freak while belting it out on his guitar like a real gone savage. What does it all sound like? It sounds like five men. People throw the typical suspects into their descriptions as a defense against the real sound.
The Velvet Underground, 13th Floor Elevators, Black Flag, The Falcons, Sam Cooke, The Users, The Sonics, The Cramps, Bo, Jerry Lee, The Gonn… Their sound is all of this and more, but all of their own.
King Khan & BBQ Show | Why don’t you lie?
The show? A mess. Love songs, punkers, improvised riot-starters, dance-floor shakers, sing-along stompers, wild rockers – you name it. They always drench the crowd in raw energy, and they’re always the last ones dancing and drinking at the bar.
The band is at the top of their game, covered by bands like The Black Lips and Jon Spencer’s Heavy Trash and cited as ‘one of the best live shows in the world’ right now. They are an awesomely surreal site to behold; a stunning garage rock machine of the highest calibre, playing incredible original hits that never end.King Khan will be supported by Bikes and Delta Love.
This event is highly recommended by Digital in Berlin! We are giving away 2 x 2 tickets. Just send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with “King Khan” as the subject.
