NYLON presents The VIRGINS Concert

Our friends at Nylon Magazine and Bloomingdale's sponsored an event last night that featured The Virgins in concert. The men's department Metro 59 was rockin' in the bottom floor of Bloomie's literally steps away from the 59th street metro stop in New York City. The Virgins took the stage in their streetwear chic and in an instant the midtown flagship store morphed into a cool Lower East Side vibe. While they're not into labels (which is why you won't find the 4-1-1 about them on Atlantic Records), their uber funk and musical prowess did not disappoint. While guests nibbled on sushi and enjoyed their Apple Martinis, one thing's for certain: this band which releases their self-titled album on June 3rd will be around for quite some time.
