Vivian Girls – 3.21.09

I used to be friends with this girl Kickball Katy online. She was a cam girl and I had an early blog (before blog was really a word). The cam girl and early blog scene sort of went hand in hand. The girls would send us photos of them that we would use for content, and then they would get traffic from our blogs to get people to buy them stuff off their Amazon Wishlist or something. Although Katy was a cam girl, she was really way to young to be involved in that stuff as she was like 14 or 15 at the time. Still we used to talk a lot and kept in touch over the years. When I moved to NYC a little over two years ago she was living in New Jersey and came out to visit one day. It was the first time I had met her in real life and she was all grown up and super hot and fucking awesome and I got this HUGE crush on her… The girl has a milkshake tattoo, what is not to love? Despite her witnessing the greatest parallel parking job of my life, she was less into me and although we continue to talk online, I really only run into her at SXSW every year despite her living in the same borough as me now. Still, when I found out her band, The Vivian Girls has blown up, I was super proud of her (or something that sounds less condescending) and I knew I had to see her at SXSW.

The Vivan Girls played about 20 times during SXSW but I only had a chance to catch them once at the Mess With Texas party at Waterloo Park. I sort of suck at shooting bands in the day time, so I wish I got to shoot them in a club, but I am going to try to hit them up in Brooklyn sooner or later so I will get another chance. Still, they rocked it and I got some decent shots. At some point during the show they some how convinced some of the most awkward kids I ever seen in my life to come on stage and stumble around like new born puppies in an attempt to dance while pretending there weren’t hundreds of people watching them. It was pretty great. I can’t wait to see them in a real rock music setting instead of a day time concert cause they pretty much fuck shit up… in a very pretty fashion. I mean how can you not love a band covered in tattoos of delicious food? I am sold.
