It's been awhile since another one of my favorite bands Vampire Weekend took the stage for a free concert in Central Park on June 14. If anyone was there, you may recall there were torrential thunderstorms minutes into the first act (Born Ruffians).
So I missed out on hearing VW live, since my friend and I weren't even in the Summerstage area, we were outside on the wood chips. All we could see was the top of the banner that's on the top of the stage.
We booked it to the subway, getting soaked. Then it was fah-reezhing on the train.
So how am I going to see my favorite Vampires? Well, I'm jetting off to Toronto on July 20th for Roger's Picnic. There are 9 bands- I'm looking forward to Tokyo Police Club, Born Ruffians and of course Vampire Weekend. It's outside and rain or shine, so I seriously hope it doesn't get rained on.
Call me crazy, but I'd do anything for a good gig.
I Love the Oxford Comma video! It's a single shot. Impressive.
