Doesn’t matter how beat you be, how weary your heart. When King Khan & the Shrines come out busting “(How Can I Keep You) Outta Harm’s Way,” and the chieftain removes his robe to reveal the most robust belly this side of Fucked Up’s Damian Abraham, you just gotta go for it. King Khan, baby. Closing out hot.
The Berlin-based tenpiece saddled up to their headlining set nearly 20 minutes late, dropping some revue-brand soul before introducing the inimitable Arish Ahmad “King” Khan, who emerged wearing a robe, Egyptian Afro wig, and, we’d soon learn, little else.
“Are we gonna have a freak-out?” he asked.
Hell yes. Full-on. Band keyboards got upended a minute later. – [Austin Chronicle]
