Dulli Prefers NYC and NOLA
The Indianapolis Star has an article up titled “Music Cities, USA” in which artists praise their favorite places to play. Greg Dulli was one of those quoted.
Greg Dulli, onetime member of the Afghan Whigs and current leader of the Twilight Singers, agrees with [Josh] Groban’s praise of New Orleans while differing from Jones on the influence of New York City.
Basically, he says, he thrives on the action.
“New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz, and there’s music going on 24/7 down there,” he says.
“New York is the capital of the world, and everybody goes there. On any given night, you can see one of the greatest acts in the world.”
Dulli, who grew up in Cincinnati and performed at Broad Ripple’s Patio nightclub in April, says he loves to visit the Big Easy and the Big Apple.
“The oven’s a little hotter in both of those cities,” he says. “That’s not to say I don’t come out shooting to kill in Indy. But the glare is a little brighter in New Orleans and New York.”
