Bocephus King

Bocephus King coming to Vallican

The tunes are soulful, the band is cookin’ and by the end of the night they’ll have a hootenanny of a psychedelic dance party.

Bocephus “Theolopolous” King, Paul “Tiger” Townsend, Wynston “The Professor” Minckler and Charlie “Purple” Hase are coming to Vallican Whole and bringing some new songs with them on Friday, November 22.

The tunes are soulful, the band is cookin’ and by the end of the night they’ll have a hootenanny of a psychedelic dance party.

Seven years after unleashing his last album to the world, Bocephus King has continued his tradition of genre-defying music with the release of his latest and fifth album, Willie Dixon God Damn.

Told in a more contemporary, present voice, Willie Dixon is a new chapter in Bocephus King’s story and a continuation of his last album, the critically acclaimed All Children Believe in Heaven, which left off with tales of 1950’s Hollywood heartbreakers, the Beats and poor lost souls.

Willie Dixon is an urgent album created from an eclectic concoction of ingredients, integrating literary and cinematic influences as well as the sounds of Eastern mysticism, soulful street carnival blues and border-town roots rock.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see band play at Vallican Whole (3762 Little Slocan Road). Tickets are $10 in advance at vallicanwhole.com or $12 at the door.
