9 pm



"We're very happy to announce that we will be supporting our good friends Frightened Rabbit on their West Coast dates in North America. During a night in the pub with FR we both agreed we'd love to tour with each other again and they suggested we come do some shows with them as a stripped back 3-piece, which they have seen us do back home in Scotland many times before. We agreed, so that's what we're doing. These stripped-back shows will give people in North America the opportunity to see the band in a different way. We're hoping it will showcase how important our songwriting process is and having a good song to begin with before adding the production is to our band."


Vir are a post-punk noise-pop trio based in the SF Bay Area, who love fuzz pedals, loops, and lots of delay. Comprised of Sam Sloane (Vox, Guitar) Natasha Arens (Bass) and Jeff Paul (Drums), Vir experiment with elements of post punk, psychedelic noise and shoegaze to conjure up a glacial, dark and dynamic sound. Based in Oakland, CA but with roots in Christchurch New Zealand, Vir has a binding affinity with many Kiwi post-punk trios such as the Gordons, Bailter Space and HDU.


“With all the boring bands parading under the indie-rock title it’s refreshing to here a band that actually sounds like it takes elements from the best of The Shins, The Strokes and The Wrens." --The Up-Turn
