The doo-wop-loving garage-rockers known as King Khan & BBQ Show (aka Arish Khan and Mark Sultan) made headlines a few weeks ago—at least on music blogs—when they and their tour manager were arrested in Kentucky on alleged possession of shrooms. Three missed shows and $3,000 later, the band was back on the road in support of the November-released “Invisible Girl.” It’s highly sexual 1950s-and-1960s-inspired rock with raunchy lyrics that in a live setting encourages the audience to seriously drink and mosh along to the freak show unfurling on stage. Khan, always clad in a unique costume (think a Prussian soldier hat, Peter Pan costume sized for a little girl, hot pants, etc.), was named performer of 2008 by Impose Magazine. Find out why.
