DVR Rewind: Vampire Weekend on SNL

As we mentioned on Friday, Vampire Weekend’s association with Saturday Night Live dates back to 2008, when the New York City-based act was steadily gaining attention from the release of self-titled debut, which had come out in late January of that year.

Vampire Weekend kick off their lengthy summer world tour on May 15, with a gig at the Agganis Arena in Boston, MA.
