Vampire Weekend have just announced that they will be playing two shows on Father’s Day Weekend (6/16 at 6PM and 6/17 at 11AM) at the Libbey Bowl in Ojai, CA. It will be the band’s first full performances in four years. “Probably worth catching both 😉,” the band teased in an Instagram post. Presumably they will be debuting songs from their upcoming fourth album, their first without the full-time membership of Rostam Batmanglij. Tickets will be on sale Friday (6/1) at 10AM PST.
In response to some Instagram comments, the band said they are “94.5%” done with their new album. They also only recently started updating that Instagram account for the first time in five years.
Last month, Ezra Koenig made a surprise appearance during HQ host Scott Rogowsky’s Running Late live show to perform a few songs.
On sale this Friday, June 1st at 10 AM PT. We’re playing two shows in Ojai this Father’s Day Weekend at the beautiful Libbey Bowl. One’s on Saturday night, the other’s Sunday morning. Probably worth catching both :wink:. Richard Pictures (featuring Time Crisis’ Jake Longstreth for all the TC Heads) is opening at both shows.
