Vampire Weekend were minstrels of late night TV in 2008, performing for Conan, Letterman, Kimmel, SNL … I’m surprised it took Jimmy Fallon over two whole weeks to book them. Last night the band played “White Sky,” a live staple we first heard over a year ago. Here’s how it sounded with a string section.
Mixed messages on the dress code there.
VW also got to meet Bayside High principal Mr. Belding, who was invited to appear in a sketch after the monologue and was not just randomly hanging out backstage at Studio 6B. Though dude knows how to party. Pic via Beggars:
In other Vampire news, the band played an even newer song “Cousins” in Guadalajara last week.
Well, that looked like fun. (Thanks Juliana for the tip!)
