Vampire Weekend 4/3/10
First show of the year at DAR Constitution Hall and it was with the excellent Vampire Weekend. Probably the most hyped band out there, this side of American Idolesque crap, I was fortunate to get tickets as Ticketmaster sold these high priced seats real fast. On a warm DC Brooke and I trekked to the show and took our seats against the wall nearly behind the stage and waited for the magic to begin. And then it happened, Vampire Weekend played nearly all the tracks from their two excellent releases for over an hour and got the crowd into it effortlessly. The best part for me was when they rocked "Campus" right into "Oxford Comma" to close the place down. For the seats we had the sound was amazing. These preppy rage against the preppy nerds can play!
