The Whigs Think We Should All Stop Being Jerks to Kings of Leon

Hailing from Athens, Georgia, the garage rock trio known as The Whigs has been plying their craft for over a decade. In that time, they have released four amazing records including last years' Enjoy the Company.

Speaking from a tour stop in Los Angeles and in anticipation of Friday's show at the Prophet Bar, lead singer/guitarist Parker Gisbert talked with DC9 at Night about the differences among late night talk shows and what makes the Athens' music scene so vital.
