Last night I was lucky enough to see the gents from Vampire Weekend play to a sold-out crowd of preppies at the Terminal 5. The show was the band’s first in New York since hitting the road for a massive tour. You could tell that all of that touring has really polished the group’s sound and live performance. Not to mention the fact that Terminal 5 is an awesome venue. Getting back to the crowd, it was pure preppy insanity. Shawl collars, Barbour coats and bow ties abounded. My friends and I even spotted what appeared to be a whole gaggle of Ralph Lauren employees cloaked in all sorts of tweed. It was definitely my kind of crowd and a great show.
Many thanks and much respect to John, Josh and Jason from The Bowery Presents for hooking it up.
