Mission control is right. The Georgia trio of Julian Dorio, Parker Gispert and Tim Deux has seen its smarter-than-your-average garage rock show grow more explosive in recent months: arena dates with The Black Keys, Kings of Leon as well as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, coupled with appearances on late-night TV and at festivals from Forecastle to Fuji, place The Whigs on a permanent upswing. But this Louisville stop, one of several that these ATO artists have made over the last three years, carries added purpose: $2 from every ticket will be donated to Starduck Charities, a nonprofit that buys gifts for the orphans of St. Joseph’s Children’s Home in Crescent Hill. Midnite Sons, whose lineup includes former Crain and Cerebellum guitarist Joey Mudd, and Bad Blood, which features members of Metroschifter and Health & Happiness Family Gospel Band, open. Some things in life are more important than rock, but sometimes rock helps make life more important. —Mat Herron
