ARTS Pick: The Whigs

Formed in Athens, Georgia in 2002, The Whigs have grown into a seasoned rock band. While teething, the group played with rock stalwarts Kings of Leon and The Black Keys before maturing a sound that is explosive and heavy, but not without infectious hooks. The Whigs’ newest album, Enjoy the Company, plays around with a bright brass section and showcases a grungy momentum that breeds naïve garage band clamor with a melodious strain of ’80s guitar pop.

Wednesday 1/8. $10-12, 9pm. The Southern, 103 S. First St., 977-5590.
