The Afghan Whigs are local legends around these parts: Birthed in the late 1980s initially as a Garage Punk outfit, the scrappy lads became critical darlings and cult faves in the ’90s after gradually morphing into an AltRock group with an ear for Post Punk and R&B. They cut a series of albums for the ever-lauded Sub Pop label under the direction of lead crooner Greg Dulli.
The Whigs (pictured in their heyday) were on two major labels and then went kaput about eight years ago.
The show will also include a raffle of CDs, gift certificates and Whigs memorabilia. A DJ will also play between-set songs by recent and modern-day Whigs spinoff groups. And another great bonus: Proceeds from the show go to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
