Kid Congo Powers + the Pink Monkey Birds (2019)

Tucson, AZ

The constant metamorphosis of Kid Congo Powers (a.k.a. Brian Tristan) always keeps intact a few things: ooky-spooky vocals sputtered over raw and wiggly grooves, and a certain mystic, nightmare glamour.

Kid Congo was a founding member of the The Gun Club before joining The Cramps and later, Nick Cave’s Bad Seeds — but it’s with him in the spotlight alongside the Pink Monkey Birds where his outsider charm takes full effect.
