In the mayfly hype/life-cycle of the average buzz band, it is already dangerously late in the day for Vivian Girls. Lucky, then, that the Brooklyn trio's dreamy, droney blend of girl-group pop and ramshackle punk is so far above average. Their self-titled debut is 22 too-short minutes of pop bliss that begs to be flipped over and spun again and again (and supplemented with 7-inches), and their live show is even more endearing. With L.A.'s Abe Vigoda, whose apocalypso punk is somehow simultaneously sunny and shady. (Neumos, 925 E Pike St, 709-9467. 8 pm, $12, 21+.)
