The Middle East in Boston announces David Virr as the new Associate Booking Agent

David Virr

I am pleased to announce that David Virr has been chosen as the new Associate Booking Agent at The Middle East in Boston.

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.

Longtime local music fan and supporter David Virr is probably better known as Dave Duncan - weekend on air personality at WFNX (101.7 FM), where he also holds the position of Local Music Director and hosts the station's acclaimed local music program, New England Product, airing Sunday nights from 11pm to midnight.

His introduction to the local music scene came first as a fan, and later as a DJ on WERS (88.9 FM) while attending Emerson College. He hosted various shows during his college years, including his own creation, "British Accents", a unique radio program highlighting the newest and best music coming out of the UK. The show featured live performances from artists like Super Furry Animals, Idlewild, and the first American radio appearance by Badly Drawn Boy.

Following his graduation from Emerson, Virr moved the still-popular radio show to Tufts University's WMFO, where he continued to host "British Accents" as a community volunteer. In 2003, he joined the on-air staff at WFNX, and in 2005, took over the Local Music Director duties. There, his duties included occasionally booking local bands to play station-sponsored shows around town, and this responsibility allowed him to develop a love and a knack for booking local shows, which has now led him to the Middle East.
