Watch Steve Buscemi and Vampire Weekend go bowling

When we last left Steve Buscemi and Vampire Weekend, the awkward combo had just received an endorsement from New York City mayoral candidate Bill de Blasio. In the latest promo video for their upcoming webcast concert, the band takes the train back to Brooklyn’s Melody Lanes bowling alley, pamphletting all the way. While Buscemi’s ten pin advice certainly proved fruitful, the real point of the adventure is to spread the word to hipsters and rap-loving white boys. But when Tomson pulls out a Big Lebowski reference, his toe slips just a little bit over the line, entering a world of pain – awkward, uncomfortable pain.

Part of the American Express Unstaged series, the April 28th concert marks the band’s first proper NYC show in two and a half years, and they plan to perform at least half of the material appearing on 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.
