The Afghan Whigs kicked off their upcoming U.S. tour — which brings them to back to their hometown twice, at Bogart's on Oct. 25 (sold out) and Dec. 31 (tickets on sale to the general public tomorrow through ticketmaster.com) — by performing on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live last night.

The Whigs performed "My Enemy," Track 2 on their masterpiece, 1996's Black Love, and played the show off with "Uptown Again" off the band's swan song, 1965, from 1998. And, once again, they sound better than ever. You can watch the full episode here.

Here's "Enemy."



And here's "Uptown," in full (only a snippet made it on the air):



The group performed a "mini concert" for those assembled at Kimmel's studio in Hollywood.

The great Whigs fan site Summer's Kiss reports that the Whigs played Gentlemen track "Fountain & Fairfax" and the Black Love song for which the site is named, "Summer's Kiss." Kimmel's official site sometimes posts bonus songs, so if/when we find good footage, we'll update this post.
