AthFest Artist Spotlight: The Whigs

Every music festival needs its share of good old fashioned rock bands, and The Whigs are here to help fill that quota for AthFest. The local trio has been spreading their garage rock revival through five studio albums, tours with The Black Keys, Kings of Leon, and Drive-By Truckers, and a notable roster of late night TV appearances. Impressively, Rolling Stone called them one of the 10 Artists to Watch shortly after the group released their debut album, Give Em All a Big Fat Lip, in 2005. Their latest release, the multi-dimensional Modern Creation , was termed “catchy” and “addictive” by Blurt Magazine just this past year. These seasoned vets will be bringing their hook and drum driven sound back to Athens for another round with its hometown crowd, sharing a AthFest headlining bill with New Madrid, another group of hometown boys.

Before his retirement, The Whigs played on The Late Show with David Letterman four times(!), most recently this past May. Check out their performance of “Hit Me” from the show (guest starring Dave’s clear desire to check out Athens. Hey Dave, celebrate retirement at AthFest!) here:
