The Afghan Whigs at The Vogue in Indianapolis on Sunday, May 22, 2022!
The Afghan Whigs
The Afghan Whigs – comprising frontman/guitarist Greg Dulli, bassist John Curley, multi-instrumentalist Rick Nelson, drummer Patrick Keeler and new guitarist Christopher Thorn (Blind Melon) – will be hitting intimate venues across the east coast, midwest, and southeast with a stop at The Vogue Theatre in Indianapolis.
“I’ll Make You See God” is a combustible head-banger, showcasing Greg Dulli’s powerhouse vocals, still soaring after thirty years since the band’s inception in 1986. “That’s one of the hardest rock songs we’ve ever done,” remarked Greg Dulli. “It was written and performed on sheer adrenalin.”
From their inception in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1986, the Afghan Whigs have never played by the rules of convention. Against the plaid-and-grunge-shaded backdrop of the early to-mid-‘90s, the Whigs stood apart from their contemporaries by virtue of attiring in suits and being way more likely to slide on up into a Marvin Gaye groove than rehash a Black Sabbath riff.
They stand apart still. Twenty-six years down the line, bands simply aren’t supposed to be making the most vaulting and thrilling music of their lives. Returning from an 11-year hiatus in 2012, the Whigs have brightened their canon with two more widely-acclaimed records digging yet deeper into the rich seam of their influences, ‘Do to the Beast’ (2014) and ‘In Spades’ (2017).
