Clearly not learning from the mistakes of Weezy (allegedly), The King Khan & BBQ Show has fallen victim to the law of the land, having been arrested in Hopkinsville, Kentucky yesterday (Nov. 12th). According to Riverfront Times (via BV), the band was arrested on drug possession charges, though this has yet to be officially confirmed.
Though the band is out on bail, the duo has been forced to cancel its tonight’s scheduled show Lawrence, Kansas. They also canceled last night’s show in St. Louis. Fortunately, Those Darlins did perform, as Deer Tick singer John McCauley, who is the fiancé of Those Darlins’ vocalist and Ukulele player Nikki Darlin and apparently stepped in at the last minute to make an impromptu performance filling in for King Khan. Yeah, talk about awesomeness.
