Epiphone's Vampire Weekend will collaborate on a concert film directed by actor Steve Buscemi later this month for the American Express Unstaged Series. Buscemi will direct VW's sold out show at the Roseland Ballroom on April 28. For Vampire Weekend, the concert at Roseland will feel like a homecoming since they all attended Columbia University.
"Playing a hometown show is a really intense and great experience," said bassist Chris Baio. "We haven't played a full New York show in two-and-a-half years, so we're gonna be really well-rehearsed." Look for the band's new album, Modern Vampires of the City, on May 28. You can catch Epi's Fats Kaplin on another American Express Unstaged Series with Jack White, directed by Gary Oldman. Meanwhile, check out the new Vampire Weekend video for their first single, "Step."
