You can listen to this audio post I made of EK introducing himself and his bandmates
Hi Laura! Vampire Weekend also performed in Turin in 2010 but I guess that doesn’t count as a proper show. The best thing you could do is to contact the promoters in Italy and tell them that you want to see Vampire Weekend live! Ask your friends to do the same (I think there are lots of Vampire Weekend fans in Italy because I regularly receive messages asking me if they will announce a tour date in your hood so this shouldn’t be difficult). Post on their Facebook pages, tweet them, email them, etc.
They will be playing Reading and Leeds in August so they will be back in Europe around that time so if I were you I would start contacting the promoters as soon as possible. Who knows they might announce European dates soon :) Good luck!
Ezra and CT took over Mushroom’s FB page last November to promote their Australian shows. You can browse this tag for more info/pics :)
Hopefully it’ll be released soon :( Three months ago when I asked EK about the video, this is what he told me:
Those are his Gucci suede loafers with espadrille base:
He first worn them at the Roseland Ballroom show in April 2013 and worn it several times after.
PS: If anyone wants to make fun of EK or marginalize him for wearing something outside of what they would “”“”expect”“” from him y’all can fuck right off :—)
It’s def not a rumor, he is performing! And yes I knew lol
but I thought it was supposed to be a ~semi-surprise~ lol but then the AP ended up writing about it so w/e ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
As for the livestream, the Oscars will air on ABC staring at 8:30 PM EST / 5:30 PM PST. There will be a livestream available on ABC.com and the Watch ABC app for iOS, Android, Kindle and Windows mobile phones and tablets, but it will only be available in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Houston, Raleigh-Durham, N.C., and Fresno, California and if you are a subscriber to Comcast, Cablevision, Cox Communications, Charter Communications, Midcontinent Communications, Verizon FiOS, Google Fiber and AT&T U-verse.
(Based on some previous shows, the song category is usually presented about 2/3 of the way through, though I don’t know when/how the actual performances will be integrated in the broadcast so make sure to tune in!)
Sorry bb but the only time I saw someone mentioned it was at the Red Butte Garden show in Utah last year (pictured here). IIRC, the person who posted it got it from the merch table at the show and still no word if the official merch store will be selling it :(
I don’t have a link but I’m trying to get a copy of the video this week and hopefully be able to figure out how to convert it, etc
I wasn’t the one who uploaded the audio (it was a submission) but I was able to download it last year. I can upload it for you but unfortunately I have been very very very busy lately so I can’t promise to work on it ASAP but I will try and post it on the blog!!
It hasn’t been released and I doubt that they will release it in the future.
I think you are talking about the Outside Lands festival but in the whole stream (which you can watch HERE), he didn’t stop singing at all?
Rostam mentioned in their Sirius XM interview from last year (a very cute interview btw) that he wanted to take his time and he had to “surrender” himself to Vampire Weekend for MVOTC. He also mentioned that his solo album just “needs to be excavated” and that it needs to be built on a little bit more.
Sorry bb but I don’t have any info on upcoming European dates. I think they wanna focus on playing more shows in the US. Also Rostam said that they are kinda slowing down this year in terms of touring so it’s really hard to tell…
They used to have a discount code on their Facebook page like two years ago but I just checked and they don’t offer it anymore :(
Vampire Weekend didn’t record a studio version of Fight For This Love because it was something that they did for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge. The copy that I have is from the Live Lounge Volume 6 CD so I think it’s the best version out there—-I’ll be uploading it in a few :)
