The King Khan & BBQ Show


"It's like the difference between The Stooges and the MC5," (Khan) said. "I like the MC5 and some of their songs, but they had this whole Viking attitude - with their women cooking and all that - toward rock 'n' roll. Then you have The Stooges and Iggy Pop, who's bloody in the bathroom with Playboy bunnies taking care of him. I know which one I'd choose." - King Khan

Me too, King. Back to the kitchen, women! With Milk Lines and Sailor Poon. $13, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary's St.

Subhumans


Not to be confused with the Canadian band of the same name, members of the second-wave of British anarcho-punk bands, Subhumans built an underground following when most of their current fans were in diapers. With their revolutionary release of The Day the Country Died, they further pushed the discontent of the working class and oppressed into the forefront of British popular culture and offered more radical solutions to the systemic problems of not only the Thatcher/Tory government, but of the entire capitalist system. These aren't "titties, jacking off and beer Oi! Oi! Oi!" songs. Hopefully there's still some piss and vinegar left in the blokes. With Lower Class Brats, Potato Pirates and Equinox. $15, 7:30pm, Korova, 107 E. Martin St., (210) 226-5070
