Despite being a shoegaze act with plenty of atmospheric qualities and a prominent “dreampop” tag on last.fm, San Francisco’s Whirr has a budding reputation as being absolutely loud on stage and fairly abrasive offstage, making them a must-see and much-hyped about act. Obviously, volume doesn’t translate through photographs, but you’re going to have to take our word for it. Whirr are loud. Maclyn Bean captured their show at The Barbary during their recent stop in Philadelphia, and you can view the photographs after the jump.
