Legendary guitar stylist Kid Congo Powers (The Gun Club, The Cramps, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds), along with cohorts bassist Kiki Solis (Knife In The Water), drummer Ron Miller (Up The Academy), and guitarist Mark Cisneros (Deathfix), are happy to announce three select West Coast shows in January, before they head out to Australia. Special guest on all three dates will be Uke-Hunt. Their most recent album, ‘Haunted Head’, is their third for In The Red Records and is available now.
WEST COAST DATES:
January 15th, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – Thee Parkside
January 16th, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA – The Echo
January 17th, 2015 – San Diego, CA – The Casbah

“For as much as Powers’ legend has been cemented in punk’s history books, he’s not out to promote a nostalgia trip; instead, he’s interested in sharing new music. His current group, the Pink Monkey Birds, is still somewhat informed by the spirit of the early punk scene in which Powers came of age…he can’t get over how cool it is when people come up to him after one of his live sets to tell him how important his music has been to them.” OC Weekly

“Kid Congo continues his ju-ju spooked, surf-whammied, mystically debauched brand of rock ‘n roll, infusing sawed off, minimalist guitar riffery with a whiff of the supernatural.” Blurt
“Brewing together garage rock, horror punk, surf, broken blues, and sounds more exotic still…”
