KING KHAN & THE SHRINES TOUR DATES/SINCLAIR (6/10/14)!

Shrines Brighton
King Khan from the last time (10/29/13) The Shrines were in Boston

I always love discovering that one of my favorite national or better yet international bands is coming to town. It’s like a birthday gift in its own little way. This time, it’s the soul machine nine piece: King Khan & The Shrines – his sensational shrines. They are heading on two massive tours (Europe & North America), making a stop at The Sinclair in Cambridge on Tuesday, June 10th. Be there or be somewhere else significantly less spiritually awakening.

King Khan and the Shrines Sign To Merge Records

KingKhanJul232012 005

Our favorite rock ‘n soul band King Khan & The Shrines will be releasing a new record later this year. As you can tell from the title, they have signed to Merge Records.

As King says: “It is a pleasure working with folks who eat ribs while they cure buffalo meat and sell rekkids.”

Details on the record and upcoming tour dates are to follow… shortly.

King Khan & The Shrines

How Do I Keep You Outta Harm’s Way? (King Khan & The Shrines)
Soulful Supreme Genius spread in the air
The King came decked out in his white suit and slicked back hair
Accompanied by his lady, an ever-grinning cheerleader
And eight Sensational Shrines in their black Shrine Uniforms
The King ordered his minions to give him
A Loud and Proud response
They Roared
Unsatisfied, he Demanded again
This time the King was blown away
He and His Shrines exploded right into “Land of the Freak”
An apropos title for this setting
The fanatics hopped up and down
Side to Side
On the Stage
Off the Stage
The blissful cheerleader sprinkled glitter into the pit
As a cute little complement to the soulful music and funky dancing
As soon as the performance ended
Excessive crowd response ensued
Just when you think it’s over…
ENCORE!
