Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds Australian tour
Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds are returning to Australia for a national tour next year, hitting Rosemount Hotel on Sunday, April 21, 2024.
Boasting an enviable rock and roll resume, Kid Congo Powers was a founding member of cowpunk blues outfit The Gun Club and the guitarist for legendary psycho-billy purveyors The Cramps and Australia’s own Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds.
Following the 2022 release of his memoir Some New Kind of Kick, Kid Congo is making his fourth trip to Australia with long-term cohorts The Pink Monkey Birds in support of their upcoming album, That Delicious Vice. Recorded in the summer of 2023 in Tucson, Arizona, at Jim Water’s Waterworks studio, the band were thrilled to collaborate with LA Chicana punk icon, singer of The Bags and author, Alice Bag, on songs Wicked World and A Beast, a Priest.
That Delicious Vice is Kid Congo and The Pink Monkey Birds’ fifth full-length studio album and marks the band’s first as a three piece. However, for this Australian run, they will be a four-piece, with a ‘surprise secret weapon’ to be be revealed when they hit our stages next year.
Kid Congo & The Pink Monkey Birds play Rosemount Hotel on Sunday, April 21, 2024. Tickets are on sale now from oztix.com.au
