Newsday Review

…Afghan Whigs, who have only grown tighter and bolder since their impressive first show at Bowery Ballroom in May. … It’s a sign that the Whigs’ best work may not be behind them, just as I’ll Be Your Mirror showed how far Dulli’s influence really carries.

Pros at rock to the Nth power of soul… Greg Dulli and friends had plenty of surprises in store for the crowd, which by now was swollen to headliner capacity.

The Cincinnati quintet sounded absolutely enormous, and with the opening trifecta of ‘Crime Scene, Part One,’ ‘I’m Her Slave’ and ‘Uptown Again,’ they revisited a singular strain of ’90s alt-rock every bit as grand twice as funky as anything disciples like the Foo Fighters have come up with since.

Greg Dulli and Co. KILLED it, playing both old ’90s alt-rock staples and newer tunes with verve.
