This is the new Afghan Whigs cover of the super-of-the-moment Frank Ocean's "Lovecrimes," which is all fine and good in and of itself but here is the real news HOLY SHIT THE AFGHAN WHIGS ARE PLAYING THE WONDER BALLROOM ON NOVEMBER 2!!!!

Finally announcing the Portland stop on their reunion tour—and finally allowing us to mark it on the calendar in indelible ink—Greg Dulli, John Curley, Rick McCollum et al will be rolling through town on Friday, November 2. Tickets go on sale this week. Expect plenty of blathering from me about how Black Love is superior to Gentlemen in the coming months.
