Greg Dulli’s Short Stop Re-ignites Echo Park

Via the LA Times Taix, along with many others, traces the initial change to December 2000, when the Rampart Division cop bar called the Short Stop was bought by a cool group of young investors including rock ‘n’ roll royal Greg Dulli, the frontman of the indie band the Afghan Whigs. Dulli and his friends shot pool at the Short Stop before they bought it, so they knew very well what kind of cultural shift they were about to introduce. “We weren’t going to be…

Greg Dulli – Dublin Review

By Philip Cummins for The State Former Afghan Whigs front man Greg Dulli – the once infamous, self-styled lothario of grunge – stands centre-stage like a youthful Johnny Cash, dressed in black and playing a Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar. A commanding presence, he is flanked only by Dave Rosser on guitar and Polyphonic Spree’s violist, Rick Nelson. Billed as “An Evening with Greg Dulli”, it marks a change of atmosphere from his recent shows with Mark Lanegan which were, to say the least, both brooding…

Greg Dulli Chicago Review – UR Chicago

Reviewed By: Justin Valmassoi, UR Chicago Just between you and me: I have an Afghan Whigs tattoo. Every year I wonder, is this the year I regret this tattoo? Is this the year Greg Dulli does something irreversibly shitty and I can no longer go, “Oh that? That’s my Afghan Whigs tattoo” with pride? When I saw the word “unplugged” on the flyer I thought to myself, here it is. The time has finally come. We had a good run, my Afghan Whigs tattoo and…

Greg Dulli Baltimore Review – Magnet Magazine

Live Review: Greg Dulli, Craig Wedren, Baltimore, MD, Oct. 23, 2010 by Doug Sell, Magnet Magazine “This is the first time I’ve been hot on this whole tour,” said a gleeful Greg Dulli near the end of a rousing set on Saturday night at Baltimore’s Ottobar. If you’ve seen Dulli live with any of his past or current outfits (Afghan Whigs, Twilight Singers, Gutter Twins), this might be a surprising thing to hear. But this 14-date U.S. tour, billed as An Evening With Greg Dulli,…

Greg Dulli NYC Review – Village Voice

CMJ Day One: Greg Dulli Seethes, Thrills, And Banters Hilariously At Bowery Ballroom By Maura Johnston, Village Voice Better than: Leaving the lights on. “Could we bring the lights down a little bit, please?” asked Greg Dulli after the first song of his Bowery Ballroom set on Tuesday night. And immediately after that request, an explanation: “Everybody looks prettier in the dark.” And Dulli should know. As frontman for the chronically tormented Afghan Whigs and the wiser but no less achy Twilight Singers, he’s constantly…

Greg Dulli – NYC Review (Pitchfork)

Ryan Dombal, Pitchfork.com “The lights are creepin’ back up,” said former Afghan Whigs and current Twilight Singers leader Greg Dulli. “Let’s make it darker.” Then the lighting person nearly put Dulli and his three-man backing band in complete blackness. Which is exactly what he wanted. It makes sense. Most of the tracks played on this night were originated by the black-on-black Twilight Singers and dealt with how love and death are intertwined with each other. Lots of characters cry in Greg Dulli songs, but you’d…

Dulli Live Review: NOLA

Keith Spera, The Times-Picayune, NOLA.com Greg Dulli kicked off his world tour on all-too-familiar Frenchmen Street World tours don’t often commence at d.b.a., the boutique beer bar on Frenchmen Street. And the club doesn’t normally sell advance tickets for its presentation of mostly local bands. But Greg Dulli is a part-time local with an international reputation. Off and on for more than 20 years, the former Afghan Whigs and current Twilight Singers frontman has lived, composed, recorded and misbehaved in New Orleans. Along the way…
