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,…

Tonight’s TS Show is Cancelled

TS in Florida and Georgia

Florida and Georgia get a rare two shows each from The Twilight Singers on this leg of their Powder Burns/A Stitch in Time tour. From all accounts, last night in Orlando was a stellar show. The band plays St. Petersburg tonight followed by Atlanta and Athens GA.

Newport Report

A quick note concerning the Twilight Singers’ Newport show. After the main set, and a rather lackluster (to nonexistent) call for an encore, the crew began disassembling the gear. After 10-15 minutes, those left in the crowd brought the noise level back up, calling the band to return from their bus for an impromptu, piano-only encore (the only instrument left on stage). After Chicago’s night one and Newport, it’s a given that encores have to be requested and earned. Now you know. See also: Scott…

Twilight Singers Chicago Setlists

Thanks to Chris, the Chicago shows have been added to the SK Setlists Archive. For those wondering about the relatively short set on night one, Chris reported this Dulli quote from the stage on night two: “Don’t forget and I never forget this as an audience member myself. It is a communion between performer and audience. You know what it’s like when you just fu@#ed somebody once and went to sleep (pause). That’s what I did last night. (pause) All of a sudden I’m ready…

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…
