The Vivian Girls have announced their final shows, and thus it is with heavy hearts, and heavier bangs, that the mid-2ks crush-wave era comes to an end, not with a bang, but with a shit load of reverbed hand-claps. We had a good run.
The trio are splitting up officially to concentrate on their individual side projects, La Sera, The Babies, and Upset, the latter of whose photo-diary we shared here a while back. The final shows will be in Los Angeles on February 14, and in Brooklyn on March 1.
They released a statement:
Brooklyn, New York, March 2007: we started making music together and became what we know as Vivian Girls. It’s been a long and crazy journey in the seven years since, and we feel as though the time has finally come to let ourband rest in peace. It’s been an experience that we’ll look back on and cherish and we’d like to thank you for sharing it with us. We have had such an amazing time being a band, touring the world, releasing records and meeting all of you.
We’ve booked some ALL AGES shows as a goodbye. The first will be on February 14th at The Church on York in LA. The second will be on March 1st at Death by Audio in Brooklyn.
Thank you to everyone who has helped us along the way, everyone who has come to our shows, bought our records and supported us, and everyone we will meet in the future.
