Doug Fir

Kid Congo Powers' pedigree is enough to make you take notice. He was a co-founder of bluesy punk freaks the Gun Club, and was later recruited by the Cramps and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. For the past five years, Powers has taken the zazz and sleaze of those bands and put it into his own project, the Pink Monkey Birds, who just released their third record on In the Red. Joining Kid Congo are labelmates Cheap Time, who—led by the band's only consistent member, Jeffrey Novak—have been cranking out hook-laden garage rock since 2006. Last year's excellent Exit Smiles doesn't miss a single stumbling step. There's a good chance you'll be stumbling out of here tonight, too. MARK LORE
