King's X was scheduled to play at Trees last March, but tragically the show had to be cancelled. Jerry Gaskill, the drummer of King's X suffered a major heart attack on February 26th, leading to heart surgery. His bad luck in 2012 was not over - after making a full recovery, tragedy hit Jerry once again when his home in New Jersey was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. But, now it is 2013 . . . . . and King's X is back! This has been a great year so far, and it keeps on getting better. The trio will play Trees on Thursday, May 16th. Dug Pinnick, on lead vocals and bass, and Ty Tabor on guitar and vocals complete the group. If you have never seen King's X, you do not want to miss this show. This band is made up of three extremely talented musicians who create incredible music together. They have a totally unique sound. An incredible example of the kind of music that they make can be heard here in "Over My Head".
King's X will play at the M3 Rock Festival in New York City May 3rd, along with Twisted Sister, WASP, Great White, Kix, Firehouse, Danger Danger, and Steel Panther. Tabor is also scheduled as one of the performing artists at the Dallas International Guitar Festival, which will take place at Market Hall April 19 - 21. Tickets to see King's X at Trees May 16th will be available Feb.8 through Frontgate Tickets for $19. Trees is located in Deep Ellum at 2709 Elm Street.
