There hasn't been an artist/venue pairing this fantastically debauched since Bianca Jagger rode a white stallion into New York City's Studio 54. King Khan & BBQ — former Spaceshits, current Shrines and Montreal's fuzziest, scuzziest doo-wop duo — in Quintron's aboveground 9th Ward basement is catnip for anyone who loves octopus-limbed noisemakers making hay in the oddest possible environs. "Thank You" notes should be addressed to Matt Muscle, whose 86'd Productions dance card is full this week. Surrounding this gig, the punk proficient also has a second lineup of shows across the street at the Saturn Bar (3067 St. Claude Ave.) featuring at least a dozen similarly possessed garage dwellers: France's Yussuf Jerusalem with Thomas Function and King Louie Bankston on Tuesday; Lovvers with An Albatross, Dark Meat, Microshards and People & Folk on Thursday; and Shapes Have Fangs, Apache Dropout, Bipolaroid (featuring King Louie) and Bellys on Saturday. Tennessee cowgrrrls Those Darlins, Missing Monuments (again featuring Louie) and Sex Hex open for Khan & BBQ. 86'd tickets range from $5 to $10. — Noah Bonaparte Pais
