Comments : My previous experience with Kid Congo Powers opening for Nick Cave was at the Beacon Theatre in NYC in 2002, and I have to admit that the Kid Congo Powers & Khan set did not fully convince me back then. However, I really enjoyed this new collaboration with The Pink Monkey Birds, reminiscent of Kid's past with Gun Club or The Cramps. The cover of Gun Club's Sex Beat was a bonus to a really great set. I am really happy to see them again tomorrow in Philadelphia.
