It’s that time of year again. Time to read (and write) those end of the year lists. Largehearted boy’s “Top 11 Albums” list includes The Twilight Singers’ Blackberry Belle in the number 8 spot. Here’s what he had to say: 8. Blackberry Belle, Twilight Singers – Greg Dulli returns with his second Twilight Singers album and focuses on songwriting while bringing in experienced session men to handle the musical load. The resulting album makes me fondly remember the Afghan Whigs, but look forward to Dulli’s…
Always willing to help out, here’s a post from the Chicago Reader’s Missed Connections: TWILIGHT SINGERS, DOUBLE Door 11/9. You: red rugby Skechers, English flag button on your jacket and light brown neck length hair. You were really enjoying the show, but you left before I could say hi. Would love to take you to a concert. 42122 (exp 12/11) Forward to a friend
The Twilight Singers finish off the first leg of their US tour tonight in Seattle. Should be a great time in one of Greg Dulli’s former “hometowns.” Travel safe.
Get out and see the boys in Portland tonight! Only two shows left on this leg…
Slim’s in SF tonight! On the road, celebrating the holidays. Back to full operation soon.
After a brief rest, the Twilight Singers roll into LA tonight for a show at the El Rey. This promises to be a great night, as it is a homecoming for the band. Let’s hope that Greg’s feeling better and that the remaining shows go off as planned. Whether or not he’s sick off-stage, his on-stage demeanor is sure to be in fine form in front of an audience of friends. There is a full meet-up thread in the forum, which seems to be evolving….
The 11/25 Twilight Singers show at Nita’s Hideaway in Tempe, AZ has been cancelled. You can contact your point of purchase for ticket refund information.
Night #2 in Texas brings the band to Austin. For longtime Dulli fans, the significance of this night is not easily overlooked. Check the forums for meetup info. Travel safe. If you meet a guy named Tater, kick his ass.
A little late getting this in. Just got back from our whirlwind trip. Updates should be regular until, oh, Wednesday or so. Houston show tonight. Have fun and be safe.
The Twilight Singers hit the road early today to make it to New Orleans for tonight’s show at Tipitina’s Uptown. Check out the Forum for meetup details. New Orleans should expect a tight show, similar to Atlanta’s, with a possible jam with local legend, and opening act, Henry Butler. There also may be a super-secret post show gig with Greg and friends (Did someone say Zeppelin and Skynyrd covers?). But, you didn’t hear it from me…
