Twilight Singers HOB Hollywood Review

Junkmedia: World of Sound Twilight Singers at the House of Blues, West Hollywood, CA There’s no better front-man in rock-and-roll today than Greg Dulli. None. A few pounds heavier than you might remember, his voice a bit more gravelly from the Camels he smokes non-stop on stage, he still carries with him the cocksure swagger that defined him as the leader of Cincinnati’s Afghan Whigs through the ‘90’s. “I know you’re feelin’ me now,” he tells an appreciative crowd at LA’s House of Blues. “I’m…

Local IQ – The Twilight Singers

Local IQ BY MICHAEL HENNINGSEN If you’ve ever been in a relationship that disintegrates to the point at which there’s such a supreme lack of intimacy and disconnect that you find yourself wishing the other party would, at the very least, scream obscenities at you, burn your clothes or smash your “happy couple” pictures, then you’re on your way to understanding the well from which Greg Dulli has mined song material for the past two decades. Complacency and disregard seem to be Dulli’s arch enemies,…

Area native Greg Dulli performs in Newport

oxfordpress.com By Richard O Jones Hamilton native Greg Dulli, a 1983 graduate of Ross High School, makes a homecoming appearance tonight (Nov. 3, 2006) at the Southgate House with The Twilight Singers, featuring Mark Lanegan, formerly of the Screaming Trees. “I met Mark at a party about 17 years ago in Seattle,” Dulli said in a phone interview. “We were introduced by Kurt Cobain. “About six years ago, we ran into each other in Los Angeles and found out we were both living here. We…

Dulli Comes Home With a Screaming Tree

CityBeat Blogs Local legend and international AltRock icon Greg Dulli brings his Twilight Singers back to the Southgate House next Friday, Nov. 3. While Dulli’s local shows always feature special “special guest” moments (like cameos from his former Afghan Whigs bandmate John Curley and Scrawl singer Marcy Mays), this time around, he’s bringing in pal and ex-Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan, who (as he did with Queens of the Stone Age previously) has endeared himself to the Twilight camp so successfully, he’s become an official…

Bringing encore back!

DelcoTimes – Rock Music Menu By Michael Christopher By this time Saturday, we’ll be one day closer to everyone ceasing to quote such an inane concept meant to shift CD units. It’s time to move on to someone trying to bring something much more pertinent and needed back to the musical landscape: the encore. In recent years, let’s say the past decade or so, the concert encore has become the most predictable and least rock and roll part of a concert. OK, so it’s 10:45,…

Twilight Singers serenade Omaha

The Gateway Angi Sada Cold air hung in a black Omaha sky as twilight settled across the Sokol Underground. Like a wet blanket Greg Dulli and the Twilight Singers wrapped their music around a waiting audience Monday night. While opening acts Jeff Klein and The Stars of Track and Field started the evening, no one was surprised by the way the Twilight Singers ended it. Klein was charming and sensitive while the Stars of Track and Field were like every other emaciated college band out…

Nice ‘n’ Sleazy

Chicagoist Last night was all about the Gutter Twins. The Double Door was packed, and the pheromones soaking the crowd served to fill in what little empty space there was. Greg Dulli’s latest incarnation of The Twilight Singers has expanded to include the whiskey-soaked tenor of ex-Screaming Trees / Queens of the Stone Age vocalist Mark Lanegan, and we couldn’t dream of a better aural foil for Dulli’s own decadent squall. Dulli opened the show, strutting about, knowing he owned the city for at least…

Twilight Captures Soul of New Orleans

Albuquerque Journal By Ron Gonzales Vocalist Greg Dulli’s projects typically have been on the soulful side of things. Beginning with his band the Afghan Whigs in the ’90s and its dance-driven take on grunge, and into this decade where his primary work has been with the Twilight Singers, Dulli has always sought to show that Motown was as big an influence on him as was any rock band. All of this makes the sound of the Twilight Singers’ new album all the more surprising. “Powder…

Collaborations brew with leader of The Twilight Singers

Daily Nebraskan By: John Wenz Laundry was never a rock star trapping. But just before The Twilight Singers started its tour Tuesday, that’s exactly what Greg Dulli was doing. He also had to get a hold of the gardener to make sure everything was in order and get somebody to pick up his mail. For the gentleman who once asked us, “Do you think I’m evil,” it’s all so downright … domestic. “The bus is picking us up at midnight tonight, so I have to…

Journey home finds Dulli at Southgate

The Cincinnati Post For the second time this year Cincinnati-area native Greg Dulli comes to town with his Twilight Singers, playing Friday at the Southgate House, Newport. It’s surprising the former Afghan Whigs frontman can find the time for the hometown fans, practically in the middle of what will end up being a world tour and his numerous recording projects. But as the Ross, Ohio, native puts it, “I got to see my mama. She wouldn’t forgive me.” Dulli has been on road nonstop this…
