As always, a big thanks to the Beachland for hosting me in the Tavern during last nights Afghan Whigs show. I ended up spinning around three-and-a-half hours before the show and another hour or so after the show. And, thanks to all those to stopped by during that time, too.

I think most would agree, The Afghan Whigs put on one hell of a show last night, right? Greg Dulli’s voice was a pointed and soulful as ever. Plus, with three guitars, they were one of the louder bands to play the Beachland in recent memory. I noted “Debonair” from the 1993 album, Gentleman, and “Going to Town” from 1996’s Black Love as two highlights from a night full of ’em.  For as much as Dulli sounded spot-on compared to his earlier days, the rest of the band were just as sharp.

Below you’ll find my playlist from the evening with a Spotify link to stream (just about) the whole thing.
