AFGHAN WHIGS FRONTMAN GREG DULLI TO PERFORM A STREAMED SOLO CONCERT LIVE FROM GOLD DIGGERS IN 
LOS ANGELES ON AUGUST 1ST

DULLI WILL DEBUT MATERIAL FROM FIRST EVER SOLO ALBUM RANDOM DESIRE
ALONG WITH A CAREER SPANNING SET LIST
On August 1st, Greg Dulli will appear live from Gold Diggers in Los Angeles, performing a solo set of material culled from his recent solo record Random Desire as well as other songs from throughout his career.

Tickets are $12 and are available here tomorrow, Tuesday, June 30th.

For the last 30 years, Greg Dulli, frontman of The Afghan Whigs and The Twilight Singers, has been the poet laureate of the bizarre whims and cruel tangents of desire. A foremost authority on the sell-your-soul rewards of carnal lust, the high voltage epiphanies of chemical enhancement, and the serotonin lows left in their wake.Therein lies Random Desire, the first solo album under Dulli’s own name which was released earlier this year, on February 21st via Royal Cream/BMG

Praise for Random Desire
"His first solo work in more than a decade reminds us why he was one of the alt-rock era's most compelling tortured romantics." - Rolling Stone

"His records are like romantic thrillers with all the exposition and character development stripped out, leaving only moments of heated conflict and disarming confessions.” - Pitchfork

"Random Desire, looks to be the best snapshot yet of the musician’s dark, soulful style, filled with minor-key grooves and stirring torch-song anthems driven by his whiskey-on-honey voice." - The AV Club

"Before they were rock royalty, Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen were artists who could best be classified as “If you know, you know.” That means before they got the deserved love, respect and acclaim that often comes with being able to survive the music industry for more than 30 years, they were those artists only those diehard fans would travel to see, get their lyrics tattooed on them and exclaim in wide disbelief when fans hadn’t heard of their heroes...You can add Greg Dulli to that group too." - SPIN

 “Dulli remains a restless and unpredictable frontman, constantly distorting his voice from a soaring falsetto into a bellowing bass, as though he's just getting started.” - Uncut Magazine

"Whereas ‘Pantomima’ cut through cynical themes with sharp, driving instrumentation, ‘It Falls Apart’ allows itself to get pulled into its darker inclinations. Perpetually falling piano notes grip at the melody, miring it in a sense of inevitable collapse. Even so, the synthesizers and drums push upward, giving Dulli’s vocals something to hook onto as he sings..." - Consequence of Sound

"Haunting, desolate and broody from the very first bars, Random Desire is a ten-song joyride through the darkest depths of Dulli's mind — told with the poetic poignancy only he can muster...Dulli has spent his whole career as a shape-shifting storyteller and Random Desire sees this continue...Dulli continually finds ways to explore the hidden pain of the human experience." - Exclaim!

"Dulli revels in murky, edgy, often choppy waters as he shifts from a booming baritone to falsetto in songs that won’t be troubling the hit parade anytime soon...Dulli’s unconventional, minor key songwriting, distinctive vocals and playing that, even with guests on every track, comes primarily from his mind and hands." - American Songwriter

"’It Falls Apart’ errs on the eerie side of Dulli’s signature sound, veering from the punchy deconstructed pop of ‘Pantomima’ toward pensive minor chords, weeping keyboard drones, and percussive tension that builds but never breaks. It’s kind of like the Greg Dulli version of Radiohead’s ‘Reckoner,’ which means it rules." - Stereogum

"’It Falls Apart’ is dark, sleek and sultry, with strings and synths riding atop a pulsing beat." - Brooklyn Vegan
