Vivian Girls announce tour

February 6, 2009  |  3:54pm
Last fall, we gave a reverberating shout-out to Brooklyn's Vivian Girls, calling the band's exuberance "a compelling battle-cry for the disappearing art of rock ‘n' roll pith."

The tattooed trio spent a good deal of time tripping around the country last year. This year, they'll hit replay and tour again, but on a grander scale; instead of Seattle and Boston, they'll hit up Amsterdam and Paris. 

A host of talent awaits the Girls' return from abroad; M. Ward, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, Black Lips and Crystal Antlers are all slated to play with them around the States this coming spring.
