King Khan / Julie Ruin / Deltron 3030 / Slayer surfer @ FFF Fest 11/10/13
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.Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013 came to a wild close on Sunday (11/10), with sets from garage soul party animals King Khan & the Shrines and metal legends Slayer. Before that, Sunday saw sets from Kathleen Hanna's new band The Julie Ruin, Deltron 3030, The Polyphonic Spree, Cloud Nothings, Washed Out, Killer Mike, The Locust and more. Pictures from the third day of FFF Fest are in this post.
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]
