Sunday 19th July sees to two iconic figures from the grunge era, Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan take to the stage at the Royal Festival Hall with a special performance. Last year the pair released the acclaimed “Saturnallia” album under the guise of The Gutter Twins, described by Dulli as “The Satanic Everly Brothers”, and they’re back together for “An Evening with Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan”.
Greg Dulli found fame as the front man for Cincinnati soul-tinged rockers The Afghan Whigs, and Mark Lanegan, with grunge pioneers Screaming Trees. Since the disbanding of both bands at the turn of the century, both artists have continued making music under various guises. Dulli has been busy with his current project, The Twilight Singers and Lanegan has been hugely prolific with not only a successful solo career, but numerous other collaborations with artists as diverse as desert metallers Queens of the Stone Age, ex-Belle and Sebastian member Isobel Campbell and UK production team Soulsavers.
We can expect not only material from The Gutter Twins, but also classics from their extensive back catalogues so should it prove to be a very special evening.
We've got four pairs of tickets to give away to lucky Londonist readers. Simply drop firstname.lastname@example.org an e-mail with DULLI in the subject line and your name & number before midday Friday.
“An Evening with Greg Dulli & Mark Lanegan” is at the Royal Festival Hall on Sunday 19th July at 7.30pm with support from Duke Garwood and Jimmy Gnecco. Tickets cost £12.50 or £15 and are available here.
