Vampire Weekend will be coming to Vancouver towards the tail end of summer to perform at he Malkin Bowl in Stanley Park (is it just me, or is the Malkin Bowl concert series particularly strong this season?). For the many people wondering, Vampire Weekend’s name comes from lead singer Ezra Koenig’s amateur film of the same name.
Check out the video for their second single from “Contra”, “Giving up the Gun” which features cameos from RZA, Lil’ Jon and Jake Gyllenhaal, amongst others.
