Not everyone gets turned on by lyrics about haunted heads and Phyllis Diller being a killer, but maybe more would if they heard them performed by the great Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds. Touring in support of its latest release, Haunted Head, the band nested at the Black Cat Backstage on Saturday, attired in matching letterman sweaters. This is a band whose members are so in sync with each other you’d swear they finish each other’s sentences—-yet the prudent addition of another local musician with killer chops, Mark Cisneros, didn’t seem to throw them off in the slightest. Resistance to Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds’ sound is futile.
