Vampire Weekend Share 'Live in Florida' EP
The recordings are taken from shows in St. Augustine and Miami
Published Jul 09, 2020It's been over a year since Vampire Weekend released their excellent fourth album Father of the Bride. The second leg of their album tour was kiboshed thanks to COVID-19, but we still get to experience more of the VW concert experience via a live EP.
The five-song release sees the band focus mainly on their Father of the Bride tracks, although they also perform "White Sky" and "A-Punk." The songs were compiled from performances in St. Augustine and Miami last year.
Of the release, drummer Chris Osborn said, "Vampire Weekend has had a long and healthy relationship with the Florida music fan, and last summer's Miami/St. Augustine run was no different.... These shows were a little sticky in the August humidity but I had so much fun playing and the really great crowd vibes always help (especially, but not limited to, Nick from Orlando's inspired assistance on A-Punk). These shows stayed with me like the pepper sauce from O'Steen's or a Cubano Doble from Enriqueta's."
You can stream the EP now via Amazon Music.
