Black Kids and The Virgins @ First Unitarian Church, Philadelphia

New York City’s The Virgins are out to have a good time and a good time is what they have every night on stage. Currently touring as support for Florida natives Black Kids. A great deal of the set reminded me of We Are Scientists with some fun distortions on guitar. Front man Donald Cummings had an intense energy that the crowd fed off of and they returned the band’s enthusiasm threefold.

Set List:
Private Affairs
Radio Christiane
Hey Hey Girl
Teen Lovers
One Week of Danger
Fernando Pando
She’s Expen$ive
Rich Girls

Ending on the high note of energetic single “Rich Girls,” The Virgins had gotten the crowd excited for headliners Black Kids. Touring their major label debut Partie Traumatic, Black Kids hit the road hard this fall taking their dance rock jams to kids all across the nation. The energy from the five piece was infectious and the entire Church basement was a great big dance party.

Set List:
Look At Me (When I Rock Witchoo)
Hit The Heartbrakes
Partie Traumatic
I’ve Underestimated My Charm (Again)
Listen To Your Body Tonight
I Wann Be Your Limo
Love Me Already
My Christian Name
Strange Power (Magnetic Fields)
I’m Making Eyes At You
I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance
You Only Call Me When You’re Crying
Hurricane Jane
