New video from The Virgins!

I feel like it's been a little while since I've posted any rock music, so for your viewing pleasure today I have a new video from The Virgins. While I've found most of The Virgins' other stuff a little more funky/80s (which is a good thing), this song remind me that sometimes you just can't beat some good straight-up ol' rock 'n' roll to get you energized for that night out, and it's also got just the right hint of pop to keep the song stuck in your head long after you've headed out and about. The Virgins are a lot of fun for everyone, and they're just awkward enough to appeal to even the disinterested uber hipster set. Speaking of fun and hipsters, I'm not sure I can say that this video is really anything particularly special or unique, but it did look like they had a lot of fun making it and I kind of wish I had been their in my best hipster hat with them.

The band has just announced a spring North America headlining tour with guests Lissy Trullie and Anya Marina (she seems like a lot of fun too, so it should definitely be a worthwhile show). Tour dates below with more to be added soon:

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Well it does say they will add more dates... So I assume NYC will be added. If not, I agree on the preposterous-ness of it.
