Vivian Girls tour, give Paste some love

Text
For shoegaze mavens Vivian Girls, it's been a big year. Their self-titled debut was gobbled up by fans and critics everywhere who took heed of album track "Tell The World." Even a roster change couldn't shake up their three-part harmony fuzz-fest.

Through the end of the year, they'll be touring with some other 2008 all-stars (Fucked Up, Deerhunter, Times New Viking and Jay Reatard) and spending New Years like everyone wishes they could: sharing a stage with Yo La Tengo. But before they do any of that they need to finish playing CMJ, where they gave Paste some love last night, reading stage-banter suggestions from our November issue. (Thanks for the tip, self-titled!)
