The Whigs news: Jay Leno, Kings of Leon, The Black Keys and more
The Whigs are excited to make their Tonight Show with Jay Leno debut August 12, 2010.
The performance comes in support of their latest album, In The Dark, which has been hailed by many for what Newsday praises as, "blending melodies from 70s Rolling Stones and 80s Replacements with 90s grunge underpinnings to build a whole new rock animal."
