Bluesman Hart Opening For Whigs

Blues-revivalist Alvin Youngblood Hart is opening for soul rockers the Afghan Whigs on their current tour. Hart got the gig after a chance meeting with Whigs singer Greg Dulli on the British rock-program "Later with Jools Holland," according to Hart's publicity firm. The pairing kicked off their tour Nov. 20 at the Showbox in Seattle, and they are currently scheduled to perform together through a Dec. 15 show at the Abyss in Virginia Beach, Va.
