For reasons that I could not possibly ever begin to comprehend, the veteran character actor Steve Buscemi and the New York band Vampire Weekend marched together in the Easter Parade And Easter Bonnet Festival yesterday on 5th Avenue. And during one moment from the parade, Buscemi hoisted a gigantic old-timey megaphone and sang an extremely brief and half-hearted version of Vampire Weekend’s hyperactive new single “Diane Young” while members of the band clustered around him. This may be the first role of Buscemi’s entire career that he has not committed to completely. Watch it below.
Vampire Weekend’s new album Modern Vampires In The City is out 5/7 on XL.
