Shadowed in blackness, The Afghan Whigs brought a darker side to the World Cafe Live stage at Non-COMM. The band performed “Fountain and Fairfax” from its 1993 LP Gentlemen, pushed forward by Greg Dulli’s vocals and his dramatic pitch changes, while “Parked Outside” from the new Do to the Beast had a more consistent and steady beat that focused more on the band’s dynamic sound as a whole. The garage and punk rock influences that the Whigs are known for came out in both songs and even after a sixteen-year hiatus, they showed showed it is still a major player. Check out the two songs below and listen to the entire set here.
