September 18. You should know his name, if you don't already. Guitarist Kid Congo Powers has done time in three of the coolest rock 'n' roll bands ever: the Cramps, the Gun Club, and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Flawless pedigree, that. But lately, Powers has at last come into his own as a front man and band leader with his Pink Monkey Birds, a unit he'll bring to BSP Lounge this month in support of its third album, 2013's Haunted Heart. Raw, garagey, and doused in danceable go-go goodness, the band winningly draws on early soul/R&B, '60s Chicano rock, and psychedelia, making this date our pick of the month. With Liquor Store. 9pm. $10, $15. Kingston. (845) 481-5158; Bspkingston.com.
