Viviangirls: I wish they were playing again next week

A couple months ago, a good friend of mine was telling me how much this band sucks. I figured he was right, because he usually is. Then I saw them for a second at SXSW, because they were playing like 5 showcases a day or something, and I was like, "Meh, this isn't really my thing." But then, wouldn't ya know it, I saw them Tuesday night in Minneapolis and they were AWWWWWWESOME. They were way more fuzzed out and post-punk sounding, and generally had a lot more going on than the stuff I'd heard before. I would strongly recommend going to see them. Sorry, previously mentioned good friend of mine. Check them out HERE. For real, they are pretty awesome. They've got loads of US, UK, and European tour dates which I didn't bother to put in any nicely formatted list because frankly I just want to read Dangerous Liaisons and watch The Daily Show. I think you can figure it (the dates) out.
