The Almighty Defenders @ Great American Music Hall
Since bailing on the super-obnoxious Spaceshits some 10 years ago, Arish "King" Khan has gone on to blaze a prolific path as the antic-prone frontman for a variety of retro-fried outfits. After a show with King Khan and the Shrines
last week and a quick hop to Coachella, Khan returns to the city and his punk-slop roots, leading the berobed and debauched garage "super-group" the Almighty Defenders
. Rounded out by the Black Lips
and frequent Khan collaborator Mark Sultan
(aka BBQ), the Defenders' sound falls somewhere between a call-and-response gospel soul session and an excuse to get together, get loaded, and play instruments poorly.
The Almighty Defenders play Great American Music Hall tonight, with opening sets by the Black Lips and Mark Sultan. (8 pm., $16)
