Weekly Playlist #9: Viva Viva (11.27 @ Mid East), Ian James, Little Spoon, Polaroids

We’re “Halfway to Hell” on a nonstop rock-and-roll train passing through the mean streets of nowhere, and VIVA VIVA is behind the wheel, steering us to the Middle East Tuesday night, November 27 for the Prince Children’s Education Fund benefit show. This latest cut from Boston’s most badass rock band is the closing track off recent EP Dead In Yr Tracks, another gritty romp through Boston’s darker rock underbelly. But on Tuesday, it's a soundtrack for a good cause as the band hits the stage with Jessica Prouty Band and Flat Swamp.

Rounding out the mix are three solo artists: the Lowell-based grudge rock of IAN JAMES, the shimmering experimentalism of LITTLE SPOON, and last-call sing-along minimalism of North of Boston’s POLAROIDS, whose debut show is Wednesday, November 28 at Great Scott for the Allston Pudding Mixtape Show that also features Pretty & Nice and the full band of recent Boston Accents crush Jack Pombriant, We Can All Be Sorry.

See you at the shows, and in the meantime, grab the entire mix via our Soundcloud, or sample them individually below. There's some tasty shit in this here mix.

> Viva Viva “Halfway To Hell” [11.27 @ Mid East]
