The King Khan & BBQ SHow | I’ll Be Loving You
This marvelously primitive two-man party-machine has roots that run deep in the Montreal underworld of Spaceshits and Sexareenos, and yet this configuration seems to top them all.
Globetrotting across North and South America as well as Europe has honed their brilliant sound to a fine edge, and has only bolstered their reputation for getting even the most reserved and milquetoasted audiences to fall to their knees in awe of the pure soul of real rock’n roll on display before them.

At their full power, all your worries will quickly melt away, and getting lost in their seductively irresistible sounds of audio salvation is easy once it gets inside your head. Scientists have a term for this phenomenon: total euphoria, and it’s as real as it gets here.
With the power to surely heal the sick and raise the dead, and BBQ’s untouchably beautiful crooning blasted with Khan’s Chuck Berry’d hog-wild guitar, it’s no wonder they’re touted as the most unrestrained and riotous party band on earth.

And conversely, their ability to master the long-lost and lonely doo-wop, Don & Dewey’d bop shoo-wop sounds still can’t cover up their ingenious raw punk sneer lurking under their unmitigated ass-shaking anthems.
The way they cover the bases so well (even paying homage to the Circle Jerks’ “Operation”) with real talent that’s not just some stroke of dumb luck, it’s no doubt that their presence is only going to get exponentially bigger as excited reports of their records and shows flood in from every direction.
