Vampire Weekend plots fall trek, brings cool pals

on May 17, 2010, 1:36pm

If you can’t stop listening to Contra, Teen Dream, and I Will Be, you’re in such good hands. New York’s hitmakers Vampire Weekend plan to pull out all of its indie rock guns this autumn for what will be thee tour of the year. Yes, believe it or not, they’ll be “vamping” across America with Beach House and the Dum Dum Girls. Good fucking god, right?

Once Vampy Weeks returns from hitting up just about every festival overseas, the indie rock sensation begins, starting at Vancouver, BC’s Malkin Bowl continuing on through Chicago’s love-it-or-hate-it Aragon Ballroom then towards the east coast for a couple of hometown gigs before switching it up and enjoying some west coast vibes at the Hollywood Bowl. There are plenty of adjectives to describe this, but we’ll settle for UINB*&YT&(BNOJM)(.

We suggest you buy your tickets immediately… or when they go on sale starting Friday, May 21st via Ticketmaster.com.
