WORDS & PHOTOS by Kristina Dawn

South African born quartet KONGOS sold out The Hawthorne Theatre in Portland, OR Friday night. Touring to promote their latest LP 1929: Part 1, KONGOS gave the audience a sneak peek into what they have to look forward to when the album drops this Friday January 18th. Playing a mixture of classics like “Come With Me Now,” the single that shot KONGOS straight to the top of the charts back in 2014, to their latest single “Pay For the Weekend.” KONGOS nearly two hour set was filled to the brim with incredible energy, heat, and lots of accordion.
