Update, 1:15p.m.: Congrats to Seth Bohlman, who snagged tickets to Sunday's show!
In my preview of Afghan Whigs' Sunday show at Granada, I perhaps remembered them a little too starkly. And though they were sort of a stark band, they had some genuine moments where they cleaved open greatness on 1993's Gentlemen and '96's Black Love, namely the latter album's final track, "Faded." Their talent for dark/stark songs has gotten an update with this summer's Frank Ocean cover.
We're doing a giveaway for two tickets to Sunday's show, with openers Centro-matic. But wait, there's more! Act now and you'll get:
A t-shirt! A bootleg download of one of the shows! Two tickets to another Granada show on another day!
