Vampire Weekend - SOLD OUT

Price: $35

When: Ended 08/5/13

Where: Orpheum Theatre

After all the widespread acclaim and a No. 1 Billboard debut for their new album, “Modern Vampires of the City,” the New York preppies who introduced horchata and kwassa-kwassa into indie-rock lingo have never been hotter. Their local theater gig is the smallest date on their tour, and it was only added late to the itinerary — seemingly as a trade for a Lollapalooza after-party (they play second-to-last on the big stage Sunday). They’ve been hit-or-miss at prior local shows, but the critical raves have continued as they’ve been playing the sleeker and more poppy new tunes on tour. The High Highs, a Bon Iver-like electro-folk duo from Australia, open. Chris Riemenschneider
