The Virgins ease into day three at SXSW

Hotly-tipped New Yorkers perform on hottest day

New York buzz-band The Virgins performed a chilled out afternoon set today (March 14) at SXSW in Austin.

The hotly-tipped quartet took to the stage at the Palm Door venue, as the temperature climbed to the nineties on what has been the hottest day of the festival so far this year.

Opening with �She�s Expensive� the band played a snappy six-song set, including �Radio Christiane�, �Private Affair� and �Rich Girls�.

The band are currently gearing up for the release of their debut album, which is slated for an April release.

The Virgins played:

�She�s Expensive�

�Radio Christiane�

�One Week Of Danger�

�Private Affair�

�Fernando Pando�

�Rich Girls�

Meanwhile, the band will be the final band to play the three-day NME extravaganza tomorrow (March 14) at Wave.
