Vampire Weekend - Halloween in L.A. (more by Rachel Carr)
Vampire Weekend

As we were saying, openers for each of Vampire Weekend's three NYC shows on January 17th, 18th and 19th have been announced. The first night at United Palace Theater has Titus Andronicus. The second at Webster Hall features Holly Miranda. And the third show at Bowery Ballroom will be opened by Dirty Projector Nat Baldwin. All three nights are sold out.

The NYC gigs come shortly after the January 12th release of VW's Contra, which is currently streaming on the band's Myspace, and will be streaming at KCRW on Tuesday. They're having a release party for the record on Thursday, January 7th at Manhattan Ping-Pong bar Spin. The band will be DJing, there's an open bar, and you can win tickets to United Palace if you're good at ping pong. Flyer and RSVP info are below.

You already know what else is going on with Titus. As for the other openers, Holly Miranda goes on the road with Tegan & Sara through April (currently no NYC stops). Nat Baldwin has a few shows around town, which are posted below.

Vampire Weekend spends February overseas, the comes back to North America for a full slate of March/April shows. Those and all other tour dates and info, with VW's new video for "Cousins", below...
