Happy Vampire Weekend Day!

May 14, 2013

vw-artToday marks the release of Vampire Weekend’s third album, Modern Vampires of the City, so … Happy Vampire Weekend Day everyone! To celebrate, I’m posting some photos from the Vampire Weekend show I attended on September 16, 2010 at Radio City Music Hall. Radio City is a big venue, but I was in the Pit, Row BB, so the pics I got were pretty nice (as was the setlist and pick I got).  My full album from this show can be seen at this link; a few of the best pics are below.

Some other great Vampire Weekend links:

And here are links to some of the many glowing reviews of Modern Vampires:

  • A.V. Club gave it an A
  • Pitchfork gave it a 9.3
  • Spin calls it a “stride toward greatness”
  • Consequence of Sound gives it 4.5 stars
  • NME gives it a 7, saying “This is a gorgeous album, but sacrifices had to be made. They’ve undeniably lost something that made them special in the first place.” I guess if that’s your “bad” review, you’re not doing too bad.
