The Whigs @ The Dame 6.20.08

I saw the Whigs at our Hot Freaks! SXSW party, but had the misfortune of eating my breakfast burrito during their set. As such, I took no photos and was often more focused on the Texas cuisine in my stage than the band on the stage. Friday proved that that was my mistake.

MP3: The Whigs – Right Hand on My Heart

Watching the Whigs made me realize that indie rock can be balls-out crazy. It was like Mudhoney had upped their melodies, downed the distortion and kept the energy. Whigs lead singer Parker Gispert rocked from foot to widely spaced foot like a a punk rocker with an anxiety disorder. Wax Fang and the Whigs was one of the best club shows I’ve been to in quite a while.
