The artwork for DIRTY VIRGINS’ self-released Whiskey Dick EP is an eyecatcher. Not because of the pale, female, thonged ass yawning for attention (the “y” in “Dirty” traces a whale tail!) but because of the old fat dude caught staring it at. Clutching a light beer and boasting a perfectly round, crescent-moon preggo belly, this mess of a man provides a nice visual for “I Like You,” a trembling garage-rock do-si-do from Allston’s newest DIY dudes that shows a kindler, gentler side until rolling off the rails in a noisy dust-up towards the end. Recorded over the summer at the Haunted Casino — on tape with a four-track and vintage reverb unit — it’s raw and bluesy, with probably the only virgin in Allston (dirty or otherwise) running down Linden Street. Grab a scrub brush as the Virgins river-hop to Somerville’s P.A.’s Lounge on Saturday for a date with Triple Thick, Radio Control, and Beware the Dangers of a Ghost Scorpion, and get your sonic cleanse by grabbing the “I Like You” MP3 below.
