More Live Footage from KEXP!!!

Another great live act from 2009, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart had enough fluffy hype to satisfy everyone's bloated ego over at Pitchfork. Fortunately, and surprisingly, in concert these dudes could really bring it. Cheers for saving an otherwise kinda pretentious concert, Pains! (I saw Ponytail play after. Not impressed, sorry guys.)

The Pains of Being Pure at Heart - Come Saturday

Yeah, and the Vivian Girls weren't much better in the critics' over-the-top adjectives department. I actually saw them play in 2008 in NYC and they sucked. But I've seen some newer live footage of the girls and it seems like they're playing with more energy, skill, and um, competence.

The Vivian Girls - When I'm Gone

Here's a band you may not have heard before: Athens' own Viva Voce. They have good guitar work, pretty vocals, and overall great songwriting. Cheers!

Viva Voce - Devotion

And finally here's a WWF Smack-Down version of "Easy," from Providence's very own Deer Tick, personally my favorite song from their last album, "Born on Flag Day."
