Twilight Singers Kick My Ass

I saw the Twilight Singers on Monday night at the TLA and they were awesome. It was the first time I'd caught them live, and I was thoroughly impressed with their energetic, passionate performance. Band leader Greg Dulli owned the stage and had the audience in the palm of his hand from the first note. Mark Lanegan joined the band for six songs during the set - a serious highlight for me since I hadn't seen him since the Screaming Trees played Lollapalooza in the mid-90's. The Philly setlist:
Teenage Wristband
I'm Ready
Bonnie Brae
Too Tough To Die
Live With Me
Where Did You Sleep Last Night?
I'll Take Care Of You
Sideways In Reverse
Amazing Grace
King Only
Fat City
Theres Been An Accident
Candy Cane Crawl
Martin Eden
Forty Dollars
Lovestoned/The Killer/Wolf Like Me
Boogie Boogie
Underneath The Waves
I don't have a recording of the Philly gig, but I do have the Lowlands Festival from August of this year. Enjoy.

dang, passed on a trip to dublin to see them on saturday night last, guess it's another one to add to my "gigs i never went to (and have regretted ever since)" list. the afghan whigs in dublin eight years back circa "1965" was an amazing gig.

Hi there,

I can't access the savefile website - any chance you could take a look at this? I adore The Twilight Singers.

Savefile seems to be working fine for me this morning. Give it another shot and let me know if there is still a problem.

Many thanks for the gig. If you ever get the philly let me know. As a major TS/Whigs fan if you want to trade some TS and Afghan Whigs (and/or Mark Lanegan/Screaming Trees), leave a reply post and I´ll recontact you to set up a trade
