Next Friday, The Vogue Theater in downtown Broad Ripple is set to bring a blast from the past with their first show of the weekend. The night will feature two older rock bands, Built to Spill, and The Afghan Whigs, who will be co-headlining the show. Joining them for their tour will be Rituals of Mine.
Built to Spill
Built to Spill is an indie rock band from Boise, Idaho that started playing in 1992. Their debut album, “Ultimate Alternative Wavers”, came out in 1993. Since then, Built to Spill has released eight additional albums over the course of their career. The most recent of these, “Untethered Moon” came out in 2015.
Throughout their years as a band, Built to Spill went through many changes, including restructuring their lineup, taking brief hiatuses, and leaving Warner Bros. Records. The current members of Built to Spill, as listed on their Facebook profile are Doug Martsch, Steve Gere, Jim Roth, Jason Albertini, and Brett Netson.
The Afghan Whigs
The Afghan Whigs edge out Built to Spill as oldest band of the night by about six years. An alternative rock and roll band from Cincinnati, Ohio, they got their start in 1986, and two years later released their studio debut “Big Top Halloween”. The Afghan Whigs’ most recent album, “In Spades” came out just last year.
In 2001, The Afghan Whigs broke up, and didn’t come back together until they reunited in 2011. Since then, it seems like The Afghan Whigs have been back on track, and committed to continuing to tour and release albums.
The current members of The Afghan Whigs are Greg Dulli, John Curley, Rick G. Nelson, Jon Skibic, and Patrick Keeler. You can find out more about The Afghan Whigs by visiting their website. You can also find them on Facebook.
Rituals of Mine
Previously the Los Angeles electronic duo known by the name Sister Crayon, Rituals of Mine was born in 2016 when Sister Crayon signed on with Warner Bros. Records. Their 2016 album “Devoted” is the first album-length release by the newly-named duo. According to their Facebook profile, “‘Devoted’ is a primal sonic rarity that delves head first into the heaviest subject matter of loss, love and heartache”.
Rituals of Mine consists of Terra Lopez and Dani Fernandez. For more information on Rituals of Mine, you can visit their website. You can also find them on Facebook, and listen to their music on Soundcloud.
The show with Built to Spill, The Afghan Whigs, and Rituals of Mine starts at 9:00 pm on Friday, April 13th. Doors to The Vogue open at 8:00 pm, and tickets to the show range from thirty-five to thirty-seven dollars.
