Canadian musician Arish “King” Khan helped usher in the third (fourth?) wave of North American garage-rock in the late 1990s with his band The Spaceshits, before earning indie rock fame as a member of the King Khan and the Shrines, an unwieldy psych supergroup, and King Khan & BBQ Show, a stripped-down duo featuring Spaceshits associate Mark Sultan. After supposedly calling it quits in 2010, Khan and Sultan are back at it, touring their (slightly less) frenetic, doo-wop-infused live show across the country and abroad. They’ll be joined at the Georgia Theatre by North Carolina punk brats Paint Fumes and local wild boys Nate and the Nightmares.
