The Afghan Whigs at Maxwell's (05-04-1990)


On May 4, 1990, the Afghan Whigs played at Maxwell's!  This tape captures the group at a big turning point in their career - as in April of 1990, the band released their second studio album, "Up in It" on Sub Pop.  With their signing, The Afghan Whigs became the second non-Northwestern U.S. band to record for the Sub Pop label.  The record was largely recorded by Nirvana producer Jack Endino.  On this tour, The Afghan Whigs also made a stop at The Pipeline in Newark, NJ and at The Pyramid in New York City.
