Watch Steve Buscemi and Vampire Weekend invite Grimes to Easter Brunch

vwbuscemigrimes Watch Steve Buscemi and Vampire Weekend invite Grimes to Easter Brunch

The last time the wonderfully awkward combo of Steve Buscemi and Vampire Weekend bumped into someone, they got some career advice (and some props) from New York City mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio.

In the latest promo video for their upcoming webcast concert, Buscemi just so happens to run into none other than Grimes while conversing in the park with his pal Gio. Seemingly old friends, Buscemi invites the orange-haired singer to Easter Brunch with him and the band, only for Grimes to decline because she hates Easter and the accompanying parade because “there’s so many children. It’s all so loud.”  We may have applauded Grimes for her courage in attacking sexism in the music biz, but dissing The Busc and chocolate eggs goes too far.

The April 28th concert, part of the American Express Unstaged series, marks the band’s first proper NYC show in two-and-a-half-years. At the show, the band plans to perform at least half of the songs from their new album Modern Vampires of the City, due out May 14th via XL Recordings.

Following the webcast, the band will strike out on a proper summer tour (sans Buscemi) — check out the full docket below.
