The Whigs specialize in earnest, guitar-driven nuggets that recall both their hometown’s jangle-laden roots and a variety of old-school heavy-hitters, from Neil Young to The Replacements.

The band’s latest record, the aptly titled Enjoy the Company, finds the guys — guitarist/vocalist Parker Gispert, drummer Julian Dorio and bassist Timothy Deaux — lightening up a bit, employing a sunnier, more expansive approach when compared to their three-chords-and-a-cloud-of-dust beginnings.

Ace producer John Angello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, The Hold Steady) no doubt had a hand in the shift, which is never more evident than on the album’s bookended tracks. 

The Whigs perform 8 p.m. Sunday, March 17 at 20th Century Theater, 3021 Madison Road, Oakley. Tickets are $12-$15. Buy tickets, check out performance times and get venue details here
