The Afghan Whigs, Joseph Arthur

PETE COTTELL
9 pm, Tuesday August 26 | $30. Through Aug. 27.
Doug Fir Lounge
830 E Burnside St.
 

[TRANSGRESSIVE SOUL SHAKERS] A certain generation may groan upon recounting the boozy, lightly chauvinist bloodletting of Afghan Whigs frontman Greg Dulli, but the proof of what made the Whigs an undeniable force is certainly in the proverbial pudding on this year’s comeback record, Do to the Beast. Out of the context set by its ’90s albums—specifically Gentleman—the sulking, orchestral grandeur of the record's high points hit with the kind of bombast Kings of Leon only wish they were romantic enough to conjure. Not even all the whiskey in the world could give modern poseurs the swagger and the stench to pull off what Dulli and co. continue to do with the aplomb of men half their age.
