Smart Bets: The Whigs

"Get off the Internet and go see a rock show," says the Facebook bio of Athens-by-way-of-Nashville trio The Whigs. It's especially good advice if the show in question is a Whigs show. Julian Dorio, Parker Gispert and Timothy Deaux perform like men on fire. Men who really like being on fire. And, though they've put in appearances on Letterman, Conan, Leno and both Jimmys, and they've toured with Kings of Leon, The Black Keys and Drive-By Truckers, they still attack their shows with the enthusiasm of three guys in a college town playing a really great house party. The Whigs will release a new album in April. In advance of that, they take the stage at The Grey Eagle on Friday, Feb. 14, at 9 p.m. Junior Astronomers also perform. $10/$12. thegreyeagle.com.
