Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds, Black Zinfandel, Last Year's Men

When: Fri., Oct. 18, 9:30 p.m. 2013

Kid Congo Powers has been a member of The Gun Club, Nick Cave's Bad Seeds and The Cramps. That's all been a quarter-century ago, though, while his new record, Haunted Head, is worth your time now. Demented and devilish, Kid Congo and his dudes bring African rhythms, English psychedelics and all-American gusto into a musky garage. There are a few immediate jams here, but the Pink Monkey Birds make prismatic rock 'n' roll, with familiar sounds refracted and reordered by dizzying imagination. You'd never expect a song called "Let's Go!" to go in this many directions. —Grayson Currin
