Mark Sultan: Show Preview 

Wednesday, May 2 2012

Let's observe a moment of silence for the King Khan & BBQ Show. For seven years, Arish "King" Khan and Mark Sultan (aka BBQ) made up one of the funniest, strangest, and filthiest musical duos in recent memory. The group's soiled presence added panache to its unhinged, fuzz-heavy '60s garage rock and tongue-in-cheek lyrics about bodily fluids and young love. After two chaotic concerts in Australia in summer 2010, the pair had, in Khan's words, "a huge screaming match," and ended the greatest team-up since Scooby-Doo and the Harlem Globetrotters. Nowadays, Sultan practices a similar sonic shtick on his own, performing as a one-man band and laying down one damaged rock song after another. Thankfully, Khan's absence hasn't affected Sultan's sick sense of humor, or his interest in public indecency.

  • Felton: Touring the Redwoods
    Blue skies meet redwood canopies in the mountain town of Felton, located just north of Santa Cruz on Highway 9. Once a bustling logging community, the town is now a mix of mellow locals and serene wilderness. Visitors can enjoy the redwoods in nearby Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park and splash in swimming holes in the San Lorenzo River. For a bite to eat stop by Rocky’s Cafe for fruit-laden pancakes, barbeque at the Cowboy Bar & Grill and poolside burgers at the Trout Farm Inn. Other stops worth checking out include Roaring Camp Railroads, the Mount Hermon zip line tour, and the educational Bigfoot Discovery Museum. For beer or cocktails a log cabin bar has you covered.
