Win Tickets/CD: The Whigs Play the 40 Watt Saturday

The members of The Whigs don’t reside in Athens any longer, but that doesn’t stop them from considering our town home at heart. Saturday, the band returns for a sure-to-be raucous show at the 40 Watt Club, and we’ve got a pair of tickets and a copy of the group’s new album, Modern Creation, on CD to give away courtesy of New West Records.

To win both of these prizes, comment below with why YOU deserve the tix and tunes. We’ll choose a winner Saturday at 4:30 p.m.

Check out the video for the group’s new single, “Hit Me,” below.
