Not yet the biggest rock band in town, King Rey may have to settle for the tallest (average height: 6-feet 4-inches). With breathy harmonies backing humid, strutting group-sung hooks, the towering Houma transplants have made waves here before making an album, their '70s-warped live show casting shadow puppets in the shapes of Harry Nilsson, Three Dog Night and the Beach Boys. Tickets $5.
