I don't know if there are any xixax whigs fans. They were a seminal band for me in high school. They just did a reunion tour and I checked them out at the pheonix in toronto. For a bunch of guys pushing 40 they pretty much kicked a ton of ass.

This video was my initial introduction to the them; up late one night watching conan. I'll never forget skipping school the next day and making my way to the local indie record shop to pick up the album. 20 years later, and first time ever seeing them live, their performance was not at all far from what you see.

I hope all y'all dig it:

the one last hit that spent you...

I never got too into Afghan Whigs, but I did have an old Sub Pop compilation album with the song "Retarded" on it, and I used to listen the hell out of that song.
That's some catch, that Catch-22.

I'm glad I looked that up, because it made me remember this song:

They're playing ACL on Friday afternoon. You might be able to catch it on the live stream here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNZlxoohoHXnaVPVfmifNYQ
He held on. The dolphin and all the rest of its pod turned and swam out to sea, and still he held on. This is it, he thought. Then he remembered that they were air-breathers too. It was going to be all right.
