BlackBook favorites The Virgins are having a busy year, having just released their new seven-inch EP Venus in Chains. The band’s currently recording their new record. More importantly, the New York-based band has signed on to play the first-ever CBGB Music Festival, a show that will take place on July 6 at Bowery Electric in the East Village.
The festival, which runs from July 6 through July 8 at over 20 different venues in Manhattan and Brooklyn, will also feature acts such as Wyclef Jean, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn, and Guided By Voices. Appreciating the other mediums that go hand-in-hand with rock ‘n’ roll, the festival also features two days of film screenings and a full day of spirits tastings.
