The Twilight Singers are Two Days Away

Did you like The Afghan Whigs? Did you like Screaming Trees? Do you like the rock music? Do you have $15? Then join me Wednesday night at the Black Cat for an evening with The Twilight Singers. They’re the band founded by legendary Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli. Their shows are fantastic — they go all out with sets that rival what you’d see at an arena/stadium show. Plus they’ve now been joined by Screaming Trees singer Mark Lanegan.

Not so many years ago Dulli’s Afghan Whigs would sell out the 9:30 Club faster than a thrown bra hits a mic stand. Now times are tough for minor rock gods and there are still tix available for Wednesday’s show. Rumor has it that they canceled their Athens, GA show because of low advanced sales (though the official story blamed it on “Greg’s vocal strain and severe sore throat”).

Stars of Track and Field will be opening.

Update: My Athenian friends are now backing off that ticket sales rumor — Greg’s voice was reportedly in very rough shape. Let’s hope it’s healed up by Wednesday.

    I’ll be there, my first Dulli show (in 10 years of listening to the Whigs and TS)
