NOLA 2Nite

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…

Atlanta Recap

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…

Lanegan Tour, Upcoming Statistics Show

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.

Road Update

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.

Philly, Cambridge, Your’e Next

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.

DC Show – Tonight

The Twilight Singers have spent the day relaxing in our nation’s capitol, and plan on shaking up the Black Cat (not to be confused with Clyde) tonight. The Washington DC pre-show meetup is in the Red Room Bar, on the lower level of The Black Cat. The bar opens at 8:00. View the Thread DC is always a kind town to Dulli, so look for a great show. I saw the Whigs at the 9:30 Club in ’98 and it was one of the best…
