Imagine Roky Erickson backed by the Sun Ra Arkestra or Wilson Pickett and The Velvet Underground, or picture the lovechild of Anubis and Kali. King Khan & the Shrines is more than a psychedelic soul band with a spectacle of a stage show. They are a cult musical phenomenon and simply one of the most entertaining groups the world has seen and heard since the days of Ike & Tina.
Do you have World Cup fever? Join the club. Perhaps you have King Khan & the Shrines fever too after watching David Beckham, Zinedine Zidane, Lucas Moura, and Gareth Bale play a friendly match in a lovely home while soundtracked by "Land of the Freak":
Witness the rebirth of What Is?!, the critically acclaimed full-length masterpiece by King Khan & the Shrines! Originally released in 2007, the album that put the band on the map in North America is now available for your electronic consumption at iTunes, Amazon MP3, and Spotify.More >
Comedian Margaret Cho has been added as the official MC of the Merge 25 Festival on Saturday, July 26!
Cho could be called “Queen of all Media,” conquering film, television, books, and theatre, with Grammy nominations, sold-out tours, and off-Broadway and TV shows under her belt. Equally as important are the causes she is passionate about. Margaret is widely recognized for her charitable work with gay rights and anti-bullying campaigns.
Margaret recently had Bob Mould on her podcast Monsters of Talk to discuss his new album Beauty & Ruin. Take a listen to the Bob Mould episode here.
Tickets for the Saturday show are still on sale via Cat's Cradle, so don't wait! Limit 4 tickets per customer.
Also, on June 5th we'll celebrate 25 years with help from the Durham Bulls! Mac will throw out the ceremonial first pitch, and Heather from Mount Moriah will sing the national anthem. Learn more and get tickets here!More >
