Vampire Veekend

12.9.07 Vampire Weekend - Bluebird Theater - Denver CO

Saw a great show in snowy Denver this Saturday. Cold temperatures forced us to drink heavily, but luckily Denver Indie Ambassador and tour guide extraordinaire Julio from Cause = Time was on point and knew all the best watering holes. At one bar we had both a lively Midlake live vs. studio debate and also made a girl angrily leave the bar after we told her we had never heard of Dane Cook or the Dropkick Murphy's but from the way she described them they both sounded awful (she was "depressed" because both shows were sold out).

Anyways Despite what "Denver Nick" said, i thought Vampire Weekend absolutely killed it. My favorite was a great call and response tune called "One (Blake's Got a New Face)". CHI cats should beg borrow and steal to get into the sold out Schuba's show tonight. Hopefully the Vampire boys are having better luck than I am getting to the Midwest considering the snow. Be sure to check out more of Julio's pics from the show.
