i heard you play guitar, down at a seedy bar

Went to see Vampire Weekend last night. It was such a fun concert. I couldn’t stop moving for the entire set. There were so many highlights, I wouldn’t be able to choose just one. They definitely lived up to the hype. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any photos. I did buy a Vampire Weekend canvas bag though. I don’t buy band t-shirts anymore. I made a resolution to stop buying them because I never wore them (actually, I wear my Hot Chip shirt a lot, but only to bed, so it doesn’t really count). But bags are OK! Anyway, to make up for a lack of concert photos, here’s a bunch of very Vampire Weekend inspired chandelier photos instead.

    oh sounds like fun! damn you year 12, for making me anti social and not able to go ๐Ÿ™

    it must have been fun, their album is so good ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway those chandelier look really nice, especially the second one

    I want to see them so much! I just reeeeally can't afford to go right now, damn saving up ๐Ÿ™
    Glad you had a good time ๐Ÿ™‚

    oh lucky! =]

    those are a brilliant set of photos, by the way.

  5. These remind me of the Prada spring summer '10 dresses!
    Love them!

    I saw them at Groovin the Moo on Saturday. Don't have any of their albums but I was suprised I knew a lot of their songs. Triple J flog the shit out of Vampire Weekend, but I'll def be buying their album for sure.

    Hey Soph, so Bronny got me onto your blog. Can't say women's fashion's much my thing but I'm following you for posts like these! I didn't know Vampire Weekend were even playing, mind you I've only just got into them (as I tend to with most hyped bands). I can definitely imagine it being a very fun gig.

    I love useful band merchandise (that and the shirts never fit properly). My favourite buys are a Rufus Wainwright tote bag and an Elbow tea towel, which is approximately the greatest thing ever. Useful AND pretty.

    me too! i buy the merch tote bags instead of tees as well (i have a stars and jason mraz tee i never wear except to bed!) although the vampire weekend ones were a bit disappointing
    the chandeliers were a nice touch to their gig!

  13. Kelly, May 13, 2010

    I saw Vampire Weekend at Groovin' the moo! They were so incredible, I know the feeling

  14. Martwa Marta May 13, 2010

    love vampire weekend as well!

  15. Jess May 13, 2010

    I LOVE Vampire Weekend – wish I could have seen them in concert ๐Ÿ˜› and also that I was smart like you and got tote bags instead of my huge pile of concert tees that are now all pj shirts haha

  16. Charlotte. May 13, 2010

    ahhh i love vampire weekend! you should post a picture of the tote bag too (:


  17. Like it !

  18. avalonne May 14, 2010

    Aww lucky, Vampire Weekend must have been so so so much fun! Glad you had a great time!

    Thanks for your lovely response to my post on time. Time is so funky, I'm finding it hard to grasp the concept of it right now, but I think I'm finally accepting the changes that have recently occurred in my life. Everything will be fine at the end of the day, right? ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. June Paski May 14, 2010

    ur so lucky, I really want see them, you should post all the photos from their show, love the lamp photos, they look like very expensive


  20. Fashlynable May 14, 2010

    Nice pictures, they do instantly remind me of Vampire Weekend. What's your favorite song by them? Mine has got to be Campus.

  21. Chrissy May 14, 2010

    That sounds like tons of fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. soph (owl vs. dove) May 14, 2010

    @stace: Hopefully they come back sooner rather than later! Year 12 will be over before you know it ๐Ÿ™‚

    @piplachic: Haha you're spot on re: Triple J. Highly recommend both albums.

    @nathan: hello hello! I think I'm going to have to start making my blog a tad more boy friendly. I've notice I'm getting a few more male followers these days haha.

    @kellyann: Thanks for all the love! You're too LOVELY!

    @evie: I've heard that. Probably the most babin' English ever haha. These photos make me want a chandelier.

    @AmyAntlers: YES! What is it with ill fitting band t-shirts? Elbow tea towel sounds amazing. I wish more bands had tea towels as merch. I'd be buying them every gig haha.

    @Amie: The VW ones were pretty simple. An easy screen print job. But I still like them, they make me feel like a VW medico or something haha.

    @Charlotte: I'll post a pic of the bag soon, promise!

    @Fashlynable: My fave song off the first album is probably Walcott. Fave off of Contra is Giving up the Gun. Like with most things, I have tiers of favourites. I have such a hard time choosing just one of anything haha.

    Vampire weekend is so good live!! Last time I saw them my bf kept telling me that the singer looks like roger federer (s/p?) and had never heard them before and and demanded to know why I didn't force him to listen lol.

    sweet chandeliers!

  24. fakeperfectionn May 14, 2010

    So glad to hear it was a good concert! I'm going to a music festival this summer to see them and I'm really excited ๐Ÿ˜€

  25. Jodi May 15, 2010

    oh my goodness im obsessed with chandeliers! i want to get one for my apartment next year ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Missy May 17, 2010

  27. Lisa Grace May 19, 2010
