King Khan and the Shrines

Yes, it is true that the sound on last year’s Idle No MoreKing Khan and the Shrines’ latest long-player—has tempered some since the venerable multinational garage-soul group’s earlier work. It happens. We age, and those fires that compel us through our younger years recede to a slow burn. None of that, however, matters. For the purposes of this preview, the only thing that matters is that a King Khan and the Shrines show is a glee-fueled mosh/dance upsurge of elation and triumph. It’s a goddamned blast. Last time I witnessed, my prescription glasses were trampled by the crowd, brand-new shoes coated in showroom-floor filth, face contused, and voice lost. It’s one of the best shows I’ve ever seen, and it felt like shotgunning cans full of the fountain of youth. GRANT BRISSEY
