Vampire Weekend Awesomeness

Last week I thought to myself that I'd like to watch one of my favourite bands, Vampire Weekend, at least once in my life. They always seem to do gigs too far away, or they'd be sold out.

This past Saturday, I suggested to the hubs that we go to Northampton for lunch and a walkabout, and after lunch, he spotted an ad for an upcoming Vampire Weekend gig! And just in time, because the gig was tonight lol

They're amazing live and did almost every song from both albums (they didn't play The Kids Don't Stand A Chance unfortunately) so it was very satisfying indeed :)

I had so much fun, although I'm reminded by each gig I attend that I'm no longer cut out for standing / dancing for four hours straight... *sigh*

The supporting acts were really good too... The Dum Dum Girls kicked off the evening (I took a picture but it's a terribly blurry one) and Beach House, pictured above. I swear I've always thought it was a guy singing, but my husband informed me after the set that it was a chick. Oops.
