SPIN.com: Greg Dulli, Freaking Flicks, and Silly Hats

I had the opportunity to see Greg Dulli and his band at Brooklyn’s Warsaw last week, and it served as an excellent reminder of two things. The first is that once I turn 30, I’m officially banning myself from rock clubs, because there is rarely anything more embarrassing than an old guy at a show. The second, though, is more important: Dulli is my favorite musician of all time. You can keep your Dylans and Bowies and Dursts — I’ll take Dulli’s brash, ballsy croon and sexual grind. Whether with Afghan Whigs, the Twilight Singers, or on his own, he has never let me down. The show was excellent — Dulli absolutely killed the best tracks from the Singers’ fantastic new album Powder Burns, and also whipped out a bunch of excellent covers: Leadbelly’s “In the Pines” (featuring Mark Lanegan on vocals), Echo and the Bunnymen’s “Killing Moon,” and in an homage to Brooklyn, TV On the Radio’s “Wolf Like Me.” Bonus Dulli moment: During the set, some guy threw some ice at the stage, and Dulli asked “Why would you throw ice at me, motherfucker? Somebody hit that guy!”
