As you’ve probably been made well aware by now through the big news peeps, Vivian Girls are playing for us at XOYO on Thursday 21st July. It’s an early show though so get down early - doors 8pm.
Tickets are £12 from http://www.wegottickets.co?m/event/115716
Support bands come courtesy of Veronica Falls and Mazes.
On their third album (and their debut for PolyVinyl Records) Share the Joy, Brooklyn’s Vivian Girls continue to sharpen and refine their transcendent mix of garage thrash, girl-group warmth and infectious pop hooksmanship. The trio’s vibrant blend of guitar noise and melodic sweetness has already made Vivian Girls one of America’s most celebrated and influential young bands, and has helped to spark a wave of similarly-inclined female-fronted acts who’ve followed in their wake.
London based Veronica Falls are a band on the rise, what with an appearance on Channel 4 the other week, supporting close friends Male Bonding amongst many others, but above all their spector-ish wall of sound, twin guitar play and Siouxsie style vocals. Their jangly pop is a joy to listen to and have finally got them down to play for us, which will be grand.
Opening on the night are the newly-signed-to-Fat Cat Mazes. They’re part of the long lineage of DIY bands coming out of Dalston in the last few years or so, with a debut single ‘Most Days’ being short in length, but not in quality penned tunes. They’ll be on very early, pretty much as soon as doors are open as a matter of fact..
DJing throughout the night is provided by Club. The. Mammoth. and Dance Magic Dance.
