Kid Congo's Birthday Party on Saturday March 27
Well, to me and others in the know about Kid's musical history will smile to themselves at the pairing of "Kid Congo" and "Birthday Party." I think if this were a television game show, "Nick Cave" might be the correct answer...
But my point really is: Kid Congo is having a very public birthday party in NYC and you're all invited! Celebrate with one of my oldest friends in the world (the other being Pleasant, pictured above with Kid)
Here's all the info you need copied directly from Kid's email:
Sat, Mar 27, Williamsburg, Brooklyn – Secret Project Robot (210 Kent at Metropolitan):
Kid Congo Powers 51st Birthday Party w/Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds (12am), Stalkers (11pm), K-Holes (10pm), Tommy Volume (9pm)
and, later, Le Congo: International Discotheque Psychedelique w/DJs Mr Jonathan Toubin and Josh Styles (1am), 9pm – 6am, all ages, $10 ($5 after bands): This all-night birthday extravaganza celebrates of one of the great names in underground rock music, Kid Congo Powers of the Cramps, Gun Club, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, etc. Kid’s band, the Pink Monkey Birds, who’s In The Red album Dracula Boots made critics’ top-ten lists worldwide last year, make their first NYC appearance in almost two years – and their first ever with the new hard-hitting Texas rhythm section.
Stalkers' Animal and Josh Styles
The Stalkers, return from recording a new LP in Portland to remind you that they are the Brooklyn punk scene’s #1 party band.
K-Holes, a bunch of Atlanta ex-Black Lips, Wet Dreams, and Golden Triangles, play an Alligator Winey steamy swamp stomp. And Star Spangles’ Tommy Volume makes his solo debut to kick off the night.
and, after the bands, hold tight… all night…
1-4AM: International Discotheque Psychedelique – the second installment of NYC uber-45 DJs Josh Styles (Smashed! Blocked!) and Jonathan Toubin’s (NY Night Train) latest party. Last months debut last month saw hundreds dancing to 60s discotheque classics, fuzzy movers, foreign language jams, and other global obscurities in an environment of go go dancers and Mighty Robot AV Squad’s tripped-out visuals.
