Big news: Vampire Weekend announced a big tour including a stop in Seattle this September!

I (barely) went digging and couldn't find the photos I snapped on my first smart phone of a very young Vampire Weekend playing to a mostly empty room at The Joint in Las Vegas back in autumn of 2008. They played to 100+ people in a room that could do 1,500 and still looked like they were having the time of their lives singing about oxford commas and NYU college life. Fast forward eleven years and two albums (with one in the oven) later, they're headling their own tour and playing WaMu freakin' Theater!

Listen: two new songs by Vampire Weekend.

WaMu Theater

Tickets go on sale Friday, February 8th, at 12:00p.

They've played other rad shows here over the years including what I consider the best Deck The Hall Ball lineup of all time:

Vampire Weekend, Phoenix, Head and the Heart, alt-J, Arctic Monkeys, Lorde, Foals and Chvrches!

My god. It's so perfect.
