The Whigs—frontman Parker Gispert, drummer Julian Dorio and bassist Timothy Deaux—have been making swaggering rock and roll together since meeting in college in Athens, Ga., a decade ago. Their recently released fourth album, Enjoy the Company, is a rousing ode to rock music. And even while playing a stripped-down version of one its songs, “Rock and Roll Forever,” exclusively for The Bowery Presents Live channel on YouTube, the upbeat energy still shines through.
And in a mural-painting shop in Brooklyn, the group’s three members talk about self-defining as musicians, owning their reputation as a raucous live band and making a “record that you put on and it makes you feel all right.” Watch the interview: http://tbp.im/TrWFaW.
