HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Thurs 30 - Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds + King Salami and the Cumberland Three + The Go Go Cult at Nambucca
The brilliant Kid Congo Powers plays a rare UK date for the Dirty Water Club. Having played with The Gun Club, The Cramps, and Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, amongst many others, the Kid knows more than a thing or two about the power of noir-ish rock'n'roll, and deploys it to startling effect with his latest band, the Pink Monkey Birds. Support comes from the hugely entertaining King Salami And The Cumberland Three, who recently found fame as part of the UK's Best Part Time Band TV series.
