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.
