Pitchfork Day 3: King Khan and His Shrines

"Throw Some Mother Fucking Trash"

Day 3 of Pitchfork got off to a slow start, but that's just because we were still drained from having our heads warped by Animal Collective. While Mahjongg played one of the most unexpectedly enjoyable sets of the weekend, Sunday didn't really get started until King Khan and The Shrines brought their sex'd up punking psychedelic soul revue to the B stage. Needless to say, the dude did not disappoint, delivering a set that exceeded the hype and cemented Khan as the Indian love child of Iggy Pop and James Brown. We were also treated, although we didn't know it at the time, to a short set by King Khan, Bradford Cox and Jay Reatard later in the evening, but it was nothing like Khan's ridiculously raw powered afternoon show. Really excited to see him tear up McCarren Pool in a few weeks, when he comes to Brooklyn with Black Lips and Deerhunter (August 3rd).
