This Sunday the Sunset Sessions featured Athens, Georgia’s own rock ‘n’ rollers, The Whigs, which was another return to their birthplace for two of the three members. And they brought along their friends Clear Plastic Masks, another great rock band from the burgeoning scene in Nashville, TN.
Clear Plastic Masks have a throw back rock ‘n’ roll sound building around those classic rock, soul, and blues, with a little psychedelics mixed in, that punk energy, and a charismatic frontman in Andrew Katz to form a force on the rock scene.
When a random audience member stops you to tell you he will sing “Folsom Prison Blues” for you, you have to give some thought to this. So Andrew told him let’s make a deal, you get naked right here, we will consider letting you on stage to sing with us. Luckily for the rest of the audience, this guy suddenly got a little gun shy, and we were back to enjoying the real talent on stage. Just one of a few funny moments on stage with Clear Plastic Masks. CPM gave Atlanta a great set, we definitely hope to catch them next time they come through town.
Once The Whigs came on, the crowd stopping eating dinner, enjoying the sunset, and headed to the stage to see their hometown heroes play. Growing up in Atlanta, and attending UGA, The Whigs have been a beloved band in this state for years and they always draw the crowd.
The one thing you know you are always going to get from The Whigs is a great set of pure fire rock music, from any of their five albums including their latest, 2014’s Modern Creation.
