CW profiled girl group Vivian Girls gave a raucous performance Saturday at Kilby Court with Provo's The Elizabethan Report and local favorite Andale!.
As usual, I rolled in late-groggy eyed after an evening nap. Alas, I missed the Elizabethan Report - sorry guys, but was just in time to catch Andale! belt out a few cheeky numbers before the Brooklyn trio took the stage. I've been pretty much obsessed with these girls from the moment I heard them so needless to say, I was amped to see them play.
Their songs manage to strike a chord with my bratty inner 16 year-old with classic topics of love and heartbreak surrounded by a wall of gritty noise. The set started rocky with some technical difficulties but it wasn't long before they had the room in the palm of their pretty little hands. They charmed the crowd with crude and energetic, surf-punk tunes in three part harmony. All without breaking a sweat or changing a facial expression. They ended their set, showing off how sickeningly talented they are, by switching instruments between one another mid-song without missing a beat.
