“An Evening With Steve Kilbey & Greg Dulli “ will feature the duo performing a stripped down set.  Kilbey & Dulli will perform a wide selection of songs encompassing both of their careers along with debuting several new ones.


As long time fans of each other’s work, Dulli met Steve Kilbey at a Church show several years back in Los Angeles and struck up a fast friendship with him.  The two have stayed in touch over the past few years and have begun working on material together.  During last year’s Afghan Whigs Australian tour, Kilbey joined the band on stage to perform the Church classic “One Day” in Sydney. You can watch that performance here:


As the lead singer and bassist for The Church, Steve Kilbey has been making music since forming the group in the late 1970’s. The Church have released over 30 albums and have garnered massive international success.  In 2010, The Church were inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame. Kilbey has also released thirteen solo albums and has collaboratively written, engineered and produced recordings with the late Grant McLennan of the Go-Betweens, Stephen Cummings, and Kev Carmody among numerous others. Kilbey was inducted into the Australian Songwriters Association Hall Of Fame in 2011.


Greg Dulli began his musical career as the front man and guitarist for the pioneering band The Afghan Whigs in 1987. Praised by critics and fans alike, the band released six studio albums, before originally disbanding in the late 90’s. Dulli went on to form The Twilight Singers, who have released five albums including the critically lauded Blackberry Belle, Powder Burns and Dynamite Steps in 2003, 2006 & 2011 respectively.  In 2008, Dulli collaborated with close friend Mark Lanegan to form The Gutter Twins. In 2012, Dulli reformed The Afghan Whigs who embarked on their first world tour in thirteen years.  In 2013 The Afghan Whigs made a surprise appearance at this year’s SXSW performing with Usher.  Dulli also performed a solo set at this year’s Sub Pop 25th Anniversary Festival in Seattle in July.

    Greg don’t do it for me but it would still be great to see a magical one-off like this. Snap them tickets up, guys – Dulli’s fans won’t hang about.

    Makes me almost wish I lived near the west coast.
    Hope it goes great and there are lots of good pics and clips from it.
    And mostly hope it’s just the beginning of collaboration between the two of you.

    until September, will be fun to catch up on everyone’s two cents… music month still? by mid-month should be a lot of stuff to read through…look forward; and to all thoughts now being creatively specific: mares eat oats and does eat oats… and little lambs be happy. a kid would be happy to, wouldn’t you… (aka when the blog gets boring the creativity is soaring. soon to be appearing.) patterns.

      now if the words start to smear bananas in your ears and everything rumbles too lively, then say: mares aren’t goats and neither eat toast and little lambs play with doughs politely…

        Just popping in before ivy opening (see pics to come on my page but that’s another story and I don’t believe in self promotion, tho meantime I’m getting over my Australian self and also looking in the mirror… that’s not easy you know) but I would like to stress without straining that mares do eat toast even sometimes sans margarine, squashed bananas, quite correct, excellent substitute, I experimented on my kids while bidding them again without stress coz that’s all in the mind and as long as you enjoy what you’re fed or enjoy the stuff you don’t refuse then … who I am I to say? Neigh hay hay nonny nonny.

    Returning home yesterday
    late for midweek
    the spring night air
    fragrant so it reeks
    almost oppressive
    to the hey fevered head
    strangely the stuffiness
    of indoors relief
    I take to my bed
    miraculously able to breathe
    waking with that vague feeling
    of something extraordinary
    oh yes!
    privileged that I saw
    a short set
    of Providence sang so sweet
    and Under the Milky Way
    thinking I’d heard it all before
    but brightened the night
    with slick in house band as you said
    so I’m thinking this is the best
    live version I’ve heard
    you ever did
    (love it with keyboard)
    for your poor friend Cora
    hopefully shortly full of life force
    experienced the support
    of her friends
    a kind crowd
    I stand with my fuzzy head
    behind a vast vase of flowers
    pink lillies enriching the scene
    surrounded by candlelight
    little shimmering
    mirror balls gleam
    a locus amoenus
    for the time being…
    then hero steps off the stage
    his guitar parts his way
    and away he go
    swallowed by the night
    and the now quiet city

    Although I’ll not be able to attend without a doubt this will be a night to remember. Caught Greg & The Afghan Whigs last June @ Tipitina’s New Orleans and they killed it! Got a holiday planned in Bondi Beach for March 2014 and am hopeful to attend one of Steve’s gigs. Rock On GD & SK!

    sometimes with
