Vampire Weekend | Halloween ‘08, ‘09, ‘11 and ‘12

2008 »> Vampire Weekend performed a Halloween show in Bristol, UK. Ezra had to take off his cape after a couple of songs because it was getting in the way. CT also took off his ninja costume towards the end of the show and played the drums shirtless.

2009 »> Vampire Weekend played a secret Halloween show at Madame Wong’s in Chinatown. Baio borrowed his shrimp costume from his friend Erik and later on, it was auctioned on Ebay. Ezra wanted to get a fake tattoo to complete his Ed Hardy douche costume, but he said he didn’t take it that far because he “isn’t wild and crazy” enough to do it.

2011 »> Ezra was kind enough to do another video chat for the fans, this time with the theme Halloween brunch. Baio dj’d at the W hotel and CT went to support him. Rostam dj’d to raise money for animals in NYC.

2012 »> Vampire Weekend performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live and revealed New Song #2’s official title—-Unbelievers. They debuted the song on television with a horn section and a cello player and while wearing spooky Halloween make-up.

[Addendum: In 2010, Vampire Weekend celebrated Halloween in Japan. Ezra was a cat and Baio was a sailor.]
