Hailing from the indie-rock hotbed of Athens, Georgia that's produced the likes of R.E.M., of Montreal, and Drive-By Truckers, the members of The Whigs have spent their career creating bruising, no-frills rock that would sound equally at home on classic-rock radio as it does on current rock stations. The trio's fourth album, "Enjoy The Company," was released in September, and continues its output of Southern-fried garage-rock revivalism. The band has shared stages with the likes of Franz Ferdinand, The Killers, and Kings of Leon, all the while honing its blistering live show. This is a concert that would be best enjoyed with cold beer and in blue jeans.
The Whigs perform Friday, March 15, 8 p.m. at Water Street Music Hall, 204 N. Water St. $13-$15. 325-5600, waterstreetmusic.com.
