King Dude

When: Fri., Dec. 2, 7 p.m. 2016

Dark forces are at work in T.J. Cowgill’s King Dude. Stark and prophetic, the Seattle folk project is steeped in sinister shades of the occult. Mumbling choruses with the quick reprise of a satanic incantation, King Dude concocts twisted numbers like “Lucifer Is the Light of the World.” Marked by Cowgill’s bottomless baritone – his vocal pitch floats somewhere between Johnny Cash and the wrathful god of the Old Testament – King Dude’s obscure variety of Americana plays out like campfire songs for the more outdoorsy sects of Luciferians.
