When Mark Sultan, the turban- and dashiki-wearing Canuck known as BBQ, and King Khan split ways from their long-running musical partnership (as the King Khan and BBQ Show) following a disastrous Australian gig, the garage world was shocked off its already turbulent foundation. But Sultan trudged on, recording a bunch of tunes that will eventually fill out a pair of LPs before we hit 2012. While Sultan's doo-slop—sappy, doo-wop-inspired slop-rock—remains his strongest suit, the man has been known to throw some snaggle-toothed swagger into the fold. Sultan recently returned from Europe, where he and Khan reconciled their differences and played a surprise reunion show in Italy. (Yep, they're back on!) He should be in top form and high spirits when he straps on his guitar and sets the scene for a punk-rock prom where everyone loses their virginity afterward. TRAVIS RITTER
