Vampire Weekend Taking Over Armory 6/9


Yes, the one and only Vampire Weekend will be performing at the Armory on Sunday, June 9th and, although it’s a Sunday, it’s sure to be one giant party that you won’t want to miss!

Vampire Weekend is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 2006 and currently signed to Columbia Records. The band was formed by lead vocalist and guitarist Ezra Koenig, multi-instrumentalist Rostam Batmanglij, drummer Chris Tomson, and bassist Chris Baio. The band’s first album Vampire Weekend(2008)—which included the singles “Mansard Roof”, “A-Punk”, “Oxford Comma”, “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa”, and “The Kids Don’t Stand a Chance”—was acclaimed by critics for its world music influences. Their following album, Contra (2010), was similarly acclaimed and garnered strong commercial success. Their third studio album, Modern Vampires of the City (2013), won the group a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Albumin 2014. Batmanglij departed the group in early 2016 but that hasn’t stopped the band from creating some of the most unique and catchy music out there. The band’s fourth album, Father of the Bride, was released in 2019.

Chicano Batman will be supporting Vampire Weekend on this show. Chicano Batman is a four-piece American band based in Los Angeles, California. Formed in 2008, the band is composed of Eduardo Arenas (bass, guitar, vocals), Carlos Arévalo (guitars), Bardo Martinez (lead vocals, keyboards, guitar) and Gabriel Villa (drums). The group’s sound draws from a mix of genres ranging from psychedelic soul, funk, indie, tropicalia, and rock.
