BREAKING: Vampire Weekend @ The Mann 9/19

Even better, they are playing the Skyline Stage. Tickets go on sale 6/28 @ 10 am.*

Kinda like The Last Supper with ski masks and firecrackers, which is, curiously enough, how I always pictured it. Directed by Primo Khan with lotsa cameos from indie-rock luminaries. Won’t spoil the surprises. Oh, and Modern Vampires Of The City is to date ALBUM OF THE YEAR for those keeping track at home. I believe we pointed out that the first time we heard it reminded us of the feelings we got the first time we heard YANKEE HOTEL FOXTROT — that we were hearing something that would have a profound cultural impact that would resonate for years and years. Beginning to think it’s actually better than YHF. There, I said it.

*Tickets available at, 800.745.3000,,,, 215-893-1999 or The Mann box office.
