74 Artists On Their Favorite Tom Petty Song

I once got busted trying to steal a magazine from my hometown library. The 8/8/91 issue of Rolling Stone apparently had one of those sensors on the last page and it beeped from my backpack on the way out. I was gonna bring it back. I just wanted to take it home to read the … More »

The Afghan Whigs to ride or die to a town near you this fall

This post was originally published on this site

Are you ready to Whig out? Do you get my joke?

Well, either way, The Afghan Whigs — a “rock and roll band from Cincinnati” — are touring the country again in support of new record In Spades, which came out back on May 5. The 28-city tour will take them all over the place, and hopefully it won’t be a DULLi time (the joke is that the lead singer’s name is Greg Dulli). Har Mar Superstar will support at all dates.

The band is currently touring Europe, but after that tour ends, this one will start. That’s how it works, if you can wrap your head around it. See, since an object can’t simultaneously exist in two spaces, it must exist in one space and then in another space, and “time” is the pure form of sensuous intuition that we use to make sense of the events those events being successive. Therefore, The Afghan Wigs will continue to tour Europe and then tour the U.S. “afterwards,” to selflessly remind us that time and space exist. So, at least there’s that.

Anyway, feel free to continue contemplating all of these transcendental issues and more at one of the following dates (which are all listed below, following the obligatory video content).
