Show Review

Raise the sails gents, for one of NYC’s most gushed about bands are prepared to cast off. Though recent XL signees Vampire Weekend’s destination isn’t entirely exotic, I suppose that could be the charm of this one. Regardless, this carefree cruise around the New York Harbor to the tune of “Mansard Roof” will have to make due until the band’s debut album is released on January 29th. - David Pitz
