The Virgins - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
The Virgins
The Virgins were formed by Donald Cumming in 2006, and quickly rose from lower manhattan to international acclaim with the release of their debut EP and album. Then they disappeared. Recently, Cumming assembled a new gang to make up The Virgins and bring the band into the next decade. Their first single is slated for release in late spring and a May 26th show at the Mercury Lounge marks The Virgins' return from the void.
Har Mar Superstar - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Har Mar Superstar
Har Mar Superstar was born ten years ago, when Tillmann was living in Minneapolis, playing guitar-based indie rock. The Har Mar idea, he says, was "a reaction to boring indie rock and how people were taking themselves way too seriously, and any aspect of playing and touring was no fun after a while, and I realized if I go to a dance party and sing an R. Kelly song on a couch, the girls are going to go fucking crazy. So I started transferring that to the stage and doing more R&B oriented songs and it really was a no-brainer after I'd done it a few times. Like, 'why don't I just make this gross, why don't I just start writing songs like that?" And as soon as I did, it was obvious, it was like a light bulb went off and I went on my way and got more and more aggressive, and the shows became this weird exercise in sexual tension, and I really learned how to play with that fire and make it work for me.
