Aussie psych-rockers King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard played four nights at Tennessee's unique subterranean venue The Caverns over the weekend and on Saturday (June 3) they performed in drag in celebration of the federal ruling of the state's drag ban as unconstitutional, according to ‘Brooklyn Vegan’.
The band wore dresses, lingerie, leggings, tops, and sun hats that they'd found in the “Bonnaroo” section of a local Goodwill store, according to SPIN. Guitarist Joey Walker said at the show, “This ain’t no protest, baby. This is a celebration!” Keyboardist Ambrose Kenny-Smith added, “This is the first and last time you’ll ever see me onstage in shorts. Take some mental notes.”
The band played ‘Gila Monster’ and ‘Converge,’ and made the live debut of ‘Witchcraft,’ all from their upcoming album 'PetroDragonic Apocalypse’ that’s out next week. The show was King Gizzard's third of four at the Caverns, the last one being a rare acoustic set. Check out videos from all the shows and the full Day 3 setlist below.
Later this month they’ll play Red Rocks, Chicago's Salt Shed, Carnation Farms in Washington state, and a three-hour marathon set at the Hollywood Bowl, their largest North American venue to date.
