Vampire Weekend @ Bowery Ballroom in January (more by Bao Nguyen)
Vampire Weekend

One. Two. Now THREE shows at Radio City Music Hall (the same number of shows Lady Gaga is playing at MSG, and one less than she played at Radio City).

Due to overwhelming demand, Vampire Weekend have added a third show at New York's Radio City Music Hall! The show is on September 17th, and will follow 2 sold-out nights on the 15th and 16th. Tickets will be on sale this Friday at 11am e.s.t.

The shows at Radio City Music Hall mark their first in their hometown since their three night run around the release of their new album Contra in January. Contra debuted on the charts at #1 and their self-titled debut album was recently certified gold. Since the album's release, the band has performed on Saturday Night Live, The Late Show With David Letterman, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. They are currently in the middle of a US tour in support of Contra.

"(the same number of shows Lady Gaga is playing at MSG, and one less than she played at Radio City)."

why?

you might as well keep going.

"exactly 4 less than bright eyes town hall residency in 2007, and precisely 2 more shows than a band will normally play in new york. also, a lot less than that time the clash played new york like two weeks in a row."

What the fuck? Porcupine Tree is playing Radio City on the 17th...a show I just dropped about $150 on. Check your source, BV, this doesn't sound right.

tangental comment referencing the Rockettes and a string of consecutive holiday shows at Radio City

Super band, but definitely overhyped.

Posted by Best Male Enhancement | March 30, 2010 12:03 PM

I dont think they're overhyped, they've paid their dues.

Although these guys are young, Vampire Weekend seems to be one of the bands that will last. If in 10 years they're not making albums anymore, I'll make sure my kids (they'll be teenagers by then) will get to listen to these guys.

I was just searching for Vampire Weekend and found this entry from 2010. This looks really like a great and fun concert. I heart that they will come to europe this year and really look forward to see them live. Jessica

Managed to get tickets for the final night, I have to say it was the best gig ever.

Posted by adam beaumont | July 13, 2011 5:08 PM

If I were to judge them by the comments I'd say they were good, to judge them from their interview dates really good, to listen to them, brilliant.

I have no idea about this band...

When you are in uncomfortable position and have got no cash to get out from that, you will have to receive the mortgage loans. Just because it should aid you definitely. I take small business loan every time I need and feel good because of this.

Posted by OfeliaGuy18 | February 17, 2012 3:59 AM

Some specialists state that loan help people to live the way they want, just because they are able to feel free to buy necessary things. Moreover, different banks offer term loan for young and old people.
