After a sixteen-year hiatus, The Afghan Whigs are back with a rock and roll tour-de-force called Do to the Beast. They showcased tracks from the new album at the first night of Non-COMM, and were the first band in the lineup to really crank the volume for the crowd. But beyond the new music showcase – and let’s be real, “Parked Outside” into “Matamoros” packed a massive opening punch – the Whigs didn’t shy away from their back-catalogue, hitting up “Going to Town” from Black Love and the incredible “Fountain and Fairfax” from Gentlemen, as well as their trademark Jesus Christ Superstar cover “Heaven on their Minds” and “Somethin’ Hot” from 1965. Listen to the set and check out photos below.
