I saw Vivian Girls (not to be confused with the indie band from Australia) open for Sonic Youth at The McCarren Pool Park show over Labor Day ’08. Since then, they’ve been burning up the Brooklyn music scene here in New York. Their sound is something of a cross between The Donnas, lo-fi, and punk.
Their debut album is very cheap on iTunes and they are awesome live. I highly recommend you check out Vivian Girls.
