the vivian girls kicked off our florence broadhurst tour friday night from our pop-up shop/tour bus in nyc’s meatpacking district. performing outside the gansevoort hotel, the girls—who reconnected for the tour after a six-month hiatus—played a short set for a packed crowd that included fans, shoppers and members of the bands life sized maps and the babies.
after a weekend in the city, the tour bus is on the move, heading next to seattle, followed by los angeles and finally austin. the vivian girls are along for the ride and will be playing live at each of our destinations. in austin, they’ll perform at south by southwest—along with the winners of our battle of the bands contest (psst… have you voted yet? help us pick the vivian girls’ opening act at sxsw by casting your vote on facebook!).
stay tuned to see more of the girls—and the bus—as they head cross-country.
