The last time we tried to shoot Viva Viva, we made an ill-fated foray into infrared photography. This time, with the addition of actual lights, you may even be able to make out more than a Sasquatch-like outline. Which is good, because we love these dudes. Forget that VV grew out of two of our favorite early-00s bands -- the Lot Six and Officer May -- or that they've got this awesome Mutt-and-Jeff thing going on. Since the dissolution of those bands, their respective frontmen have taken their rock-and-roll hearts back to the classic shit: one second they sound like the Doors doing Beatles-in-Hamburg material, the next they're hybriding Stones/Stooges raveups in the manner of the first Verbena album. Here's the set opener, recorded March 29 at the Middle East as part of our Best Music Poll showcase:

COMING SOON: Faces on Film Live at the Middle East

    Just a heads up: This is a video for Opening Day at Fenway; not Viva Viva.
