Kid Congo Powers at Summer Thunder

This weekly throwdown in Union Pool’s back patio brings bands and DJs that are way better than they need to be for the gratis admission price. Get there early.
By some estimations, Kid Congo’s been a part of at least 420 bands over his three decades-long career, including legendary acts like The Cramps, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and this writer’s personal favorite, The Gun Club, of which Powers was a founding member. He’s maintained the same trademark style throughout, but what’s truly impressive is his ability to consistently churn out a fresh take on what’s become a recognizable sound: garage rock that has kidnapped classic rock n’ roll and splattered a spooky, punk attitude all over its high drama, all while injecting a heady dose of grit into the glamorous excess.
