(NOT THAT) It can't happen... just that it hasn't happened yet.

The Whigs made a readers-choice list in NME magazine rating the Most Exciting American bands. ATLiens Snowden made the list as well.

The band is touring currently but will be returning to Athens on September 10th to play the 40 Watt along with Tokyo Police Club.

Former Athens musician Will Rutland passed this info along.

"I've started an artist website called Ephemera in an effort to give fledgling/unheralded artists a platform from which to present their wares to the world. We take all media (music, visual art, poetry, prose . . . we even had present wrapping featured in our last gloss), without exception or reservation. "

Check them out at:

Wrong Way (a Sublime tribute band based out of Athens) and Grogus (Latin jazz from Carl Lindberg & friends) team up this Thursday, August 28th at Georgia Theatre, to play a benefit for Nuçi's Space.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased online here.
