Take a look here to see if Afghan Whigs is showing somewhere nearby

The Afghan Whigs dealt in some of the smokiest, seediest rock 'n' roll to emerge from the 1990s. Their speciality was tales of sex, betrayal and death, laced through with explosions of distorted guitar, and all related by Greg Dulli's silky croon. If ever there was a band ready made for a David Lynch movie soundtrack, they were it.

Happily, this richly hued atmosphere of menace was all present and correct on The Whigs' 2013 effort Do To The Beast, the band's first album for 16 years. Featuring the tracks Algiers and Matamoros, it returned the Afghan Whigs to their rightful place at the top of the alternative rock table. The band are touring Do To The Beast, along with the rest of their noir-flavored catalogue, across North America and Canada this summer and fall.
