On a scale from punk to pop, this is the scale.

So, listen up: Vampire Weekend are coming to Portsmouth’s Guildhall on the 28th June. This is MIND-BOGGLING, for a few reasons in particular: a) rarely does such an esteemed AND current act (it’s either one or the other at the Guildhall these days) make its way to the prestigious venue - let alone anywhere on Portsmouth’s shores - and b) well, sure, as a blog we have been concocting a vast range of intimate, nitty-gritty DIY shows across the city in conjunction with Southsea’s Pie & Vinyl for some months now, but there comes a time where the big guns get pulled out and actually manage to pull it off. This is that time, and this is that show. Which brings us on to reason c): It’s goddamn Vampire Weekend YOU GUYS.
If you haven’t heard the new record yet, Modern Vampires of the City, it is without a doubt their most accomplished work to date. Haters wanted to hate, but as this gleaming Pitchfork review notably points out, they just couldn’t. Hell, even I disregarded Contra as a throwaway piece of bubblegum pop and wasn’t even convinced at first by lead single ‘Diane Young’; but ‘Step’. Oh, ‘Step’. It’s a thing of utter beauty.
Plus, who wouldn’t be excited at the prospect of seeing a band who’s live show was recently directed by the living legend Steve Buscemi? Who’s promotional campaign contacted everything from Grimes to The Big Lebowski references? The Guildhall as we’ve come to know, can be a venue of wonder if the right acts grace its stage, and if the cuts from Modern Vampires of the City are anything to go by then I’m almost certain we’re in for a treat come the 28th June.
Of course, don’t just take my word for it: take Jools Holland's. 

Vampire Weekend live dates:
27th June, o2 Academy Bournemouth
28th June, Guildhall, Portsmouth
