ACL Day 1: Afghan Whigs

Afghan Whigs recently reunited after their breakup in 2001. Last time I saw them, they opened up for Aerosmith at Retama Park. People kept asking "who is this band?" They don't seem to have that problem anymore, as they appear to have gotten more popular while they were broken up. The audience at ACL were definitely happy to see them today as they seemed to sing along to every word from their groundbreaking album Gentleman to their newest cover of Frank Oceans' "Love Crimes."
