Houston's Born Again Virgins Can't Sit Still

Meet Born Again Virgins, perhaps Houston's last pure rock and roll band.

"The songs we just pull out of the air," explains Red of a typical Virgins practice session. "We just start playing and jam for 15-20 minutes, and I just sing about anything and everything I can, whatever's on my mind, and we just do it."

Back at Rudz, in the stairwell, Ottea nails what fuels the Virgins' relentless hunger to rock.

Born Again Virgins (L-R): Ryan Ottea, Adria LeCrone, James Red and Brian Wayne.

Stoked to hear about a Houston rock n' roll band I'm not familiar with, but to call them Houston's last rock n' roll band seems a bit nuts to me. The Real Energy, Weird Party, Something Fierce, Mikey and the Drags, and the Mahas all come to mind immediately.
