On the heels of their excellent third album, Modern Vampires of the City, Vampire Weekend brought their tour to Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Friday (9/20) -- the day after Yeah Yeah Yeahs played the same big venue -- for what was their largest headlining NYC show yet. VW split the set pretty evenly between all three of their albums, playing tons of highlights like "Giving Up the Gun," "Cousins," "Unbelievers," "A-Punk," and many more in their 23-song set, plus a cover of Blur's "Song 2." Opening the show was two pop singers with a Dev "Blood Orange" Hynes association, Solange and Sky Ferreira. Pictures of all three artists are in this post.
The show also streamed live on Sirius XM's Alt Nation, and if you missed it (or want to listen again), it rebroadcasts today (9/23) at 8 PM ET.
