Gig Information

Get greasy in the psychedelic swamps of rock íní roll with Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds! A founding member of The Gun Club and erstwhile guitarist for The Cramps and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, the legendary Kid Congo Powers has garage punk swagger in spades. Few musicians play in one cult band, Kid has played in three. He makes his first trip to New Zealand with long-term cohorts The Pink Monkey Birds for a night of raw, sonic ambrosia featuring a heady mix of fuzz guitars, New Orleans drum beats and bass lines dripping with soul, not to mention also dipping into tunes from the Cramps and Gun Club. And referencing the Gun Club - Kid was a founding member of that special group, performing at both their first and last shows

His new album La Arana Es La Vida is available now through In The Red Records.
