The Afghan Whigs
Manchester Cathedral July 17th.
Just a few weeks ago we were extremely lucky to witness a live event that will permanently stay with us. A memorable evening set in such an honorable and prolific backdrop. The Afghan Whigs were recently touring the UK in support of their phenomenal release ‘Do To The Beast’, their first album of new material in 16 years. And the bands return to Sub Pop this April.
Their set in it’s entirety showcased the best of their abilities, captivating every single person in the audience with their chilling performance. Their 2 hour set comprised mostly of compositions taken from ‘Do To The Beast’ with some old classics thrown into the mix to awaken those fans who fell in love from the start of The Afghan Whigs journey. The atmosphere and the energy that each musician and their creativity creates is something out of this world.
But despite how utterly blissful the evening was frankly, no review and no words I can structure together would give justice to The Afghan Whigs live performance, and just how perfect the entire evening was. So instead, thanks to some stunning images by Oli Montez, gaze upon the pictures, for these say more than I can.
