Steve Buscemi To Direct Vampire Weekend Unstaged Webcast
Luxury car-arsonists and victims of my unintentional comment-disabling Vampire Weekend are set to play a homecoming show at New York City’s Roseland Ballroom on 4/28 which will also kick-off the fourth edition of American Express’ Unstaged webseries and close the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival. The webcast will be directed by Steve Buscemi, the collaboration seemingly foreshadowed by the band’s appearance with the actor at NYC’s Easter Parade. Drummer Chris Baio expressed to Rolling Stone a deep affinity for Buscemi’s work, including Sorpanos episode “The Pine Barrens” and 30 Rock’s “Leap Day.” “I feel safe in his hands,” Baio says. RS also reports that the band has been developing the live show with Buscemi and there will be extra documentary-style footage that will be unveiled before the concert. The show will stream live on YouTube, Vevo, and AMEX’s Unstaged website.
