Mark Lanegan @ Webster Hall, NYC - March 19, 2008 (Ryan Dombal)
Gutter Twins @ Webster Hall

After a pretty lame applause from the crowd, Greg Dulli emerged to the stage. Smoking his hundredth cigarette of the night, the Gutter Twins co-frontman quickly confronted the crowd as to why the rest of the band remained hidden in the shadows on the side of the stage. Saying something like "We walk off stage, 5 people clap, and we're supposed to come back out and play more songs," he criticized the crowd for their incredibly weak call for an encore. [NY press]
The Gutter Twins played one of NYC's latest landmarked locations Wednesday night. They also played on TV.....

Oh, poor Greg Dulli... riding the coattails of Mark Lanegan back to relevancy. Fuck him.

Mark Lanegan has one of the coolest voices. I love that guy. Greg Dulli not so much . . . .

Greg Dulli could do fine on his own!

Man, Lanegan's voice sounds shot.

Maybe if the music wasn't so weak more people would be into it. (this coming from a screaming trees & afghan whigs fan for over the past 17 years.....)

you could not see the stage at all. was bizarre..

What Anon 9:30 said. Lanegan sounded amazing at the semi-recent Soulsavers show at Gramercy Theater. He sounded good at Bowery, too, but Dulli's presence is a major downer.

i don't know... maybe people just weren't that into it and hence the weak applause. and maybe also we're all so used to the obligatory encore (and often 2nd encore) that we don't try harder as fans.

Uh oh, the fanboys are angry! Don't upset their sacred cows.

IMO, Afghan whigs were way better and more relevant than the Screaming Tress.

Also, Letterman has really good taste in music. Second only to Conan. Jay Leno like the RHCP for cryin' out loud...

Posted by Ron | March 21, 2008 11:57 AM

Letterman likes Foo Fighters though. is that a push or -1?

Posted by Anonymous | March 21, 2008 12:14 PM

I agree with anon 11:54! Afghan all the way!

god this music sucks. so formulaic and derivative--like a group of dads jamming on the weekend, where they appear to be rocking harder than they actually are.

and is it just me, or did Dulli somehow become John Belushi?

i am a die hard whigs fan but dulli is a bloated fat mess and i cant stand his other stuff.

lanegan's solo albums and work with isobell and soulsavers and everyone else is just awesome. he deserves all the recognition he is getting.

Awesome!
