Vampire Weekend has accomplished a lot for itself in the six or so years that the band has been putting out music, moving fast up the venue ladder to play, for example, the Barclays Center last month. Compared with that, tomorrow's date at the Midland is like a club show.

The band's new record, Modern Vampires of the City, contains enough smart, bouncy music that at least one song is sure to get "Horchata" out of everyone's head. Yeah, it's tempting to write these guys off as arrogant hacks - that can happen when bands lose their "indie" cool and gain widespread popularity (or when the band members happen to all dress like arrogant hacks). But if you resist that temptation, this promises to be a tight and entertaining show. 

For ticket info, you can go here. Or you can just enjoy this smarmy, but thoroughly enjoyable, music video by the band.
