Live/Concert

The Afghan Whigs

When: Tue., Sept. 26, 7 p.m. 2017

For an alternative rock band to have survived 31-years is no easy feat. For Cincinnati five-piece the Afghan Whigs, it’s a reality. Though they disbanded for a decade back in 2001, their latest effort, 2017’s In Spades celebrates a new side of an old band. There’s a weightiness to Whigs rocky ambience that, observing now, is monumentally influential (we’re looking at you Brand New.) Don’t for a second think that they’ve softened, however. In fact, their evolved well-roundedness screams of a band who’s done it all before, just not quite like this.

Doors open at 7 p.m.; 431 E. Congress, Detroit; 313-961-8961; saintandrewsdetroit.com; Tickets are $30.

Price: $30
