Live: The Whigs, The Features, Mean Creek at The Black Cat, 12/10

Before the show, WGTB spoke to Whigs drummer Julian Dorio on-air. Listen to the whole interview and a new Whigs track here.

Athens, Georgia band The Whigs brought their brand of boisterous rock to The Black Cat on Thursday night, filling up the modest-sized venue with what seemed to be a large constituent of Georgia natives. The band made its entrance to the Atlanta Braves theme song while the crowd performed the signature tomahawk chop. They launched into their hour-plus set with “In the Dark”, the title track from their forthcoming third studio album. Highlights of the show included one of the band’s biggest hits, “Right Hand on My Heart,” a rendition of “Already Young” with a killer drum solo, and a two-song encore. The performance seemed to be the perfect soundtrack for a backyard party down South, and it played great in such an intimate setting. The three-man band was loud, tight, and full of energy, and they left the crowd buzzing, both in their ears and of excitement.
-- Jared Iversen, "Jive Talkin'," Thursdays 12-2 p.m.
