Brooklyn-band Vivian Girls have just announced via Facebook that they will be breaking up.
They will be bowing out with a show at Death By Audio on the 1st of March. Tickets have just gone on sale HERE so grab them quickly. They have always blown me away as a live band so it should be a great but also a sad evening.
UPDATE: The DBA show sold out and now a final show has been added on the 2nd of March at Baby’s All Right. Ticket info HERE.
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 our band 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.
Feel free to follow us on Twitter for updates in our other pursuits: @cassieramone @iamkatygoodman @hernameisali
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.
I’m a big fan of the band and sad to see them go but it’s no great surprise, the band’s last album, Share the Joy, was three years ago. Katy Goodman’s project La Sera should be releasing a new record this year (Sees the Light was my favourite album of 2012) while Cassie has been playing various solo shows for a while now and is due a solo record soon.
Thanks for all the music!
