Black Kids, Virgins, Team Band All Ages Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard

When: Mon., Oct. 6, 7 p.m. 2008

I don’t suppose the Black Kids and the Virgins are calling this the Dangerously Overhyped Like Seriously It Might Almost Be Physically Dangerous This Amount of Hype North American Tour ’08, but they can have the name if they want. I still think the Black Kids are a decent band (on record at least), but all this about the Virgins being rock ’n’ roll saviors just makes me go, “Really?” This summer’s self-titled debut on Atlantic has a few decent hooks, and the bass line to “Rich Girls” is nice, but all the Vice recommendations in the world won’t make me not think they sound like the J. Geils Band. —Miles Raymer
