On October 18th, 2019, Vivian Girls played one of their reunion shows at First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia. Young Guv, the project of Fucked Up guitarist Ben Cook, and Philadelphia-based four piece rock band Empath opened up the show as well.
Young Guv opened up the show with a brisk set of indie pop songs that recalled bands such as Thin Lizzy with their power pop guitars. They played mainly songs from their 2019 record GUV 1 and will release another record GUV 2 this week. They are on Run For Cover records and played a quick and melodic set of songs that set the night off to a good start.
