Vivian Girls @ Death By Audio

Vivian Girls

Cassie Ramone and Vivian Girls perform.

Last week I saw Vivian Girls play at Death By Audio in Williams­burg. It was my sec­ond time see­ing them, and cer­tain­ly won’t be the last. The Times print­ed a rave review:

Even though this band’s music tends toward the dis­cor­dant, Vivian Girls … are roman­tics at heart. Their taut, no-non­sense songs brim over with noise and touch­es of shoegaze reverb, but at the cen­ter are glo­ri­ous, gen­tle har­monies.

They open for Son­ic Youth tomor­row, August 30th, at the McCar­ren Park Pool, or you can catch them again at Death By Audio on Sep­tem­ber 2nd.

Lisa and I spent a good chunk of the week­end fur­ni­ture shop­ping, and spring clean­ing. On Sat­ur­day, we ven­tured deep into Con­necti­cut to go to an estate sale, in pur­suit of what turned out to be an Amer­i­can-made Dan­ish “style” din­ing set, which was just too big and ugly to buy. From there, we drove over to Bea­con, NY, which has a cou­ple of nice stores with mid-cen­tu­ry fur­ni­ture, (Anna found some amaz­ing stuff there). We had some cof­fee (pho­to below the fold), but left emp­ty-hand­ed.
