Vampire Weekend stopped by the East Bay Wednesday night to a sold out Fox Theater in Oakland. Following the opening act dance party provided by the New York electro outfit Tanlines, the crowd’s energy was high and filled with anticipation for the east coast darlings to take the stage. Near identical to their Coachella performance on Sunday, the band rattled off a set list full of fast paced hits with no time for banter in between.

Vampire Weekend gave a teaser of their forthcoming album playing the two recently released singles “Diane Young” and “Step” and Ezra Koenig said they will have a setlist full of new material when they return in August. Be sure to catch them this summer at Outside Lands 2013, providing a welcome burst of energy to a festival bill near you!
