I think Arctic Monkeys would get the slot Vampire Weekend got last year they could sub-headline one of the nights on the mainstage
no they really wouldn't unless something major changed. Arctic Monkeys played the showbox at the market last time they were in town, Vampire Weekend played 2 nights at the paramount. That's a huge difference in popularity and cost. Arctic Monkeys are huge in Europe but they are still pretty mid-range here
VW really came through for their fans after that cancellation. Pretty cool of them to reschedule as quickly as they did.
Gah they were so amazing in Portland when they came. They played all but 2 of their songs, and they sounded exactly like they did on the album. It was raining extremely hard but nobody gave a shit it was Vampire Weekend.
I got tickets to the marymoore show, but then I couldn't go to the make up it really sucked. I really liked the first album, but I never could get into the second album until I saw them live as sasquatch.
