Mad props to longtime friend and FNX local music show host Dave Virr (Dave Duncan) on getting the local booking agent gig at the Middle East in Cambridge. One of the first people I met when I moved to Boston, Virr hosted the wonderful "British Accents" readio show at Emerson back in the day, and has since become a mainstay in the scene, both breaking bands on the airwaves and booking them in nightclubs. He's one of the original pill faces, too. (Pictured here, on the right with me at last month's Puma mp3 battle).
Here's official word from the MidEasy, one of the best rock venues in the country: Middle East is pleased to announce that David Virr has been chosen as the new Associate Booking Agent at The Middle East. The Associate Booking Agent will be responsible for booking Boston bands, as well as New England and New York bands here at the club. Kevin S. Hoskins will continue to book the national / touring bands for The Middle East Upstairs and Downstairs. David's email is David@mideastclub.com.
