King Khan & The Shrines graced the stage at the Triple Door this past June as part of the KEXP's VIP Club concerts, a series of shows put on for radio station donors. Watch the full performance above.

The show began with a theatrical introduction, all leading up to the grand entrance of King Khan, dressed in a tan suit and a huge feather crown. He is extremely charismatic and has a wild stage presence. He interacts with the crowd and relates every one of his songs to a personal experience or cause. He even tells inspirational anecdotes in the middle of them, as shown when he talks about going on a vision quest and coming back a warrior in the middle of the tune "Stone Soup."

The music more than backs up King Khan's huge personality. It's extremely soulful, with some psychedelic and free jazz influences present throughout. Khan's garage rock background shines through as he howls the vocals to all the songs. His yell turns heartfelt and emotional during "So Wild," a tribute to late punk rocker Jay Reatard. He has the crowd singing, "You got a heart made of trash," during "Stone Soup." King Khan & the Shrines are like nothing you've heard before, and by the end of the show, the audience is left with an unforgettable experience.

Their latest record, Idle No More, is out now on Merge Records. You can pick it up on Amazon and iTunes.
