ARTIST: The Whigs

DOWNLOAD: "Summer Heat"

SHOW: Tuesday at Mercury Lounge ($12)

The Whigs are a snarling southern garage rock band, from that musical hotbed of Athens, Georgia -- home to REM, the B-52s and so many other groups. If you’ve been pining for summer, their song "Summer Heat" might tide you over until June hits.

Download "Summer Heat" above, and watch a video, below. The band plays Mercury Lounge Tuesday night.
