King Dude, Of the Wand & the Moon, A Story of Rats

When: Wed., March 27, 9 p.m. 2013


Would you believe the soundtrack for the apocalypse is being made by a guy named King Dude? Actually, his name is TJ Cowgill, a metalhead from Seattle who, these days, is a true freak-folkie painting grim pictures of hell and the folks who will surely end up there. It's like Slayer minus the intensity. King Dude is actually more entrenched in country and '50s rock 'n' roll—even at his darkest, Cowgill still has an ear for the occasional sweet melody. But add a croon that sounds like it comes from the bowels of Hades, and you know you're not living with the Cleavers. Unless there's a mushroom cloud involved. MARK LORE
