After a series of near-misses, we finally got the chance to catch the Vivian Girls and the scene could not have been more enjoyable. The band rocked on a beautiful day in the outdoor setting of the East Village Radio Fest and their pop-punk-surf-rave-ups fit the day perfectly. The Vivs managed to pack eleven powerful songs into a too-brief 25 minute set, and left us wanting more. Fortunately, the Vivian Girls are quite active. The official re-release of their album is due on October 7, and they will perform again in NYC at Cake Shop on September 19 (with Awesome Color).

We recorded this set from the same location as our Awesome Color recording, and the sound quality is quite similar except that there was a little more wind at this time. Enjoy!

    You got the tracklist wrong. I can’t verify songs 5,6,7 and 10, but the correct tracklist seems to be:

    01 All The Time
    02 I Can’t Stay
    03 Such a Joke
    04 Damaged
    05 I Don’t Wanna
    06 Second Date
    07 [new song]
    08 Tell the World
    09 Never See Me Again
    10 Girl Don’t Tell Me (Beach Boys)
    11 Wild Eyes
