Don't think this is a hardcore band based on their name. NYC's Vampire Weekend play sliding and gliding pop that sounds similar to French Kicks, The Walkmen, The End of The World, and the pioneers of sliding and gliding pop, Squeeze. So yeah, they're not goth either. Vampire Weekend leave the distortion pedals and black attire at home.

This is a highly melodic group of guys that deftly tread the line between catchy and sugary. In other words, you can tap your toes and bop your head as much as you want to these songs without ever feeling nausea from the pop overload. No, Vampire Weekend won't make you vomit.

Vampire Weekend play the Troubadour, on Monday, July 16th, and Silverlake Lounge, on Tuesday, July 17th.
