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…
Last night in Atlanta, Greg Dulli proved that the Twilight Singers could be whatever band that he wanted, at any time. Smith’s Olde Bar saw a very different Singers than the other shows I’ve caught, in New York, and Cincy. The band was nothing short of an efficient, steamrolling machine, plowing from song to song with NO breaks or monologues, aside from a brief greeting from Gen. Sherman and a shortened Purple Rain intro. The time between encores was also incredibly short. Total running time…
Greg Dulli confirmed that six days following the Twilight Singers’ US tour, he will join Mark Lanegan’s (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age) touring band on keys for their west coast dates. Lanegan provided vocals on the track Number Nine on Blackberry Belle. Dulli returned the favor with some studio work for Lanegan. John Curley’s new band the Staggering Statistics will play their next show in Cincinnati on December 23rd at the Northside Tavern.
Sitting in La Guardia, waiting on our flight back to Atlanta. The sold-out NYC show was great, and l-o-n-g. It was great to meet so many members of the forum at the pre-show meetup. The meetup tonight is at the venue, Smith’s Olde bar. Stop by and say ‘Hi.’ Updates will be scattered until the weekend, and I finish up my vacation. Enjoy the shows and check the forum for setlists and info.
I’m off to NYC for Monday night’s show. I’m told the hotel has internet access; but just in case, remember that Philly is tonight, Cambridge tomorrow. Get out and have fun. Check the Forum for meetup details.
