Metallic Falcons Record Release, Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds, Nomi, Bow Ribbons – Tonic $3

Metallic Falcons is a new band consisting of Sierra Casady of CocoRosie and Matteah Baim from Voodoo-EROS. Tonight’s show is to celebrate the 06.06.06 release (c’mon, everybody, it’s 06.06.2006) of their debut record, Desert Doughnuts. The album includes guest appearances by Antony of Johnsons Fame, Devendra Banhart, Jana Hunter, and Greg Rogrove of Tarantula A.D.

While the mysterious duo look a bit like a couple of savvy urban siblings of Cousin It, their appearance is apparently the result of being “transspecied from desert falcons.” Hence their spacious ethereal soundscapses, the dust blowing around the sunbaked surface under a wide night sky, and the hole in the middle.

Joining them will be underground guitar legend Kid Congo Powers, Voodoo-EROS’ “Borough Gypsy” Nomi, and Bow Ribbons. This time the guitar legend Powers and his equally dangerous sidekick Jack Martin will be performing as a stripped-down version of Kid Congo and the Pink Monkey Birds, joined by another important figure in New York downtown music history, prolific powerhouse pounder John Fell (the 88th best drummer of all-time!).

Also, take note moochy lushes, the cover is only three bones and Tolkion’s sponsorship will get ya free beer until 9:30… If I don’t drink it all first…
