Vampire Weekend to Perform at The Pearl at The Palms Sept. 29

June 22, 2010 by  

The eclectic Vampire Weekend bring their preppy, indie rock sound to The Pearl Concert Theater inside the Palms Casino Resort on Wednesday, September 29, 2010 at 8:00 p.m. with special guests House and The Very Best.

Vampire Weekend set sail towards becoming a household name in 2008 when they released theie self-titled first album. Songs such as “Oxford Comma” immediately set the stage for the band’s unique sound and the album debuted within Top 20 charts in both the U.S. and U. K.

Ideas for Contra, the band’s sophomore release, had been bubbling since before the release of their debut and the band began recording in January 2009, only two weeks after finishing an 18-month world tour supporting the first record. The sound is familiar, yet new territory for Vampire Weekend with includes from third-wave ska, Brazilian baile funk, Congolese thumb pianos and countless other influences that run the musical and instrumental spectrum. These influences are incorporated with subtlety and sophistication.

Vampire Weekend’s music and lyrics serve to both construct and deconstruct a world around them. Like the word “contra” itself, the songs are layered with meaning and invite interpretation. With this album, Vampire Weekend have staked out an alien territory literate, crackling, alive that’s unmistakably their own.

This event is presented in association with Andrew Hewitt and Live Nation. Doors will open at 7:00 p.m. and show time is 8:00 p.m. The Pearl Box Office is open Sunday through Wednesday from noon – 7:00 p.m., Thursday and Friday from noon – 9:00 p.m. and Saturday from noon – 9:00 p.m. The Pearl is sponsored by Citi; for more information on upcoming concerts, please call 702-942-6888.
