FhS 270: Viva Viva

August 1st, 2011

We weren’t planning on putting this one out for a while, but after seeing Viva Viva knock the socks off of Precinct (and with only 3 members!), we decided to bump it up in the queue. This one’s a bit of a bittersweet session for us, as it was the last one we recorded at the original Flophouse. At least we went out with a bang.

Be sure to check out their earlier sessions, download individual tracks here, or stream the whole thing, complete with studio chatter and a bonus off-the-cuff cover of Rumble by Link Wray:


The Flophouse Sessions 103 – Chris Warren

May 8th, 2008

Chris Warren

Former Officer May frontman and current Viva Viva co-frontman Chris Warren threw together a band at the last minute to stop by and work out some tunes. And work them out they did. They’ll be playing on Friday, May 9 at PA’s for our big benefit show. They’re on first – get there right at 8 and you won’t be kicking yourself later!

Song List:

  1. Total Eclipse of You
  2. First Time I Saw Her
  3. Memory’s a Funny Thing
  4. At Least a Little Piece of Me
  5. Where We Are All Going
  6. Let Me Down
  7. You’re One in a Million
  8. Shoes
  9. How You Feel Today

PS – Thanks to everyone who pointed out my stupidity for putting Total Eclipse on twice. It’s now fixed so you can hear One in a Million.


The Flophouse Sessions 82 – Viva Viva

December 1st, 2007

Viva Viva

Yes yes y’all. We can’t tell you how much we love this band. They’re one of those bands that make you want to curse a lot. They’re playing tonight at Emergency Music‘s EP release show at Great Scott!

Song List:

  1. On With the Show
  2. Let it Go
  3. Little Dirty Angel
  4. Easier
  5. I Can Do Anything
  6. Heartache in the Blood
  7. Sympathy for the Devil’s Little Helper
  8. Maybe We Can Be Friends

The song list is a little messed up – we’ll fix it in a couple of hours.
