Sometimes I feel incredibly unacquainted with many groups that I should know and don't. A great example is the band The Afghan Whigs and Greg Dulli. My only exposure to them is a scene in a movie I dig called 'Beautiful Girls' where they play the bar band. Pathetic, I know. Formed in Cincinnati in the late '80's, I should have been all over them. Damn you, Good Ole Grateful Dead for making me miss out on the heyday of indie classic goodness! Going into the show absolutely cold, I really enjoyed the set. Seems like Dulli's in Pittsburgh all the time but from what I hear this might be the farewell tour for The Twilight Singers. Glad I caught them before it was too late.
