    An Evening with The Afghan Whigs At The Vogue

    From their inception in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1986, the Afghan Whigs have never played by the rules of convention. Against the plaid-and-grunge-shaded backdrop of the early to-mid-‘90s, the Whigs stood apart from their contemporaries by virtue of attiring in suits and being way more likely to slide on up into a Marvin Gaye groove than rehash a Black  Sabbath riff. 
     
    They stand apart still. Twenty-six years down the line, bands simply aren’t supposed to be making the most vaulting and thrilling music of their lives. Returning from an 11-year  hiatus in 2012, the Whigs have brightened their canon with two more widely-acclaimed records digging yet deeper into the rich seam of their influences, ‘Do to the Beast’ (2014)  and ‘In Spades’ (2017).
