Just as I was finally getting ready to return to the interview I conducted with the general manage of Bogart’s, Karen Foley, news comes to me that pre-sale tickets are on sale starting at noon today for the Afghan Whigs, who haven’t played a concert anywhere in over ten years, and are returning to Bogart’s, the last place they played. The show is October 25; presale tickest are available to Afghan Whigs fans starting at noon at THIS LINK
The password for pre-sales is: uptownagain
Another option: tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday at 10 a.m.
My favorite Afghan Whigs concert took place at Shorty’s On Vine, a small, short-lived venue that had some great acts, including the Smashing Pumpkins. During their encore, the Afghan Whigs played back to back – although I don’t remember in what order – “Rain” by the Beatles and “Africa” by Toto.
