A hilarious negative review of the album from someone who was predisposed to hating it!

Honor system!!!
Wow. I don't know if I should hold you to that. It's a very generous offer. We are still waiting for our shipment. Did you get yours as part of the concert ticket purchase or directly from the store?
I will let you know what we get (hopefully we get something soon) . My girl turns 18 next week and that would be the best present she ever got.

From VW's online store - it was the only place to get the colored vinyl, afaik, and I'm a sucker for colored variants.

Have you (or anyone else who ordered a freebie with concert tickets) gotten your disc yet? My daughter is a little worried that we haven't yet. I also lost my confirmation and can't find the original email.
If you could tell me, where did that email direct you? I don't even know which website I ordered it from or if my upgrade purchase went through. Thanks.

Answering my own question, just got an email. They just shipped from the Vampire Weekend - TM Store. They sent the LP and CD separately and mailed them via USPS Media Mail. Might take a while.

I received 2 different shipment emails stating the quantity of 2, so they may have shipped me 4 CD for my 2 tickets, I'll see in a few days.

The more I listen to this, the more I think this is my favorite VW album yet. It's a grower. Only song I really don't get is 'My Mistake'.

Listened to it a couple of times, not crazy about it. I donít like the Linda Rondstandt/Paul Simon vibe. I think the album is really missing Rostamís input. I will listen some more, not ready to give up yet.

Re: Vampire Weekend - Father of the Bride -- April 2019

As I mentioned in the Recently Seen Concert thread, we went to Indy and saw them last night. Great show. Ran 2:15 and could have gone longer but for the noise ordinance enforced at 11. Had great view up front. Here's another Pic

And here's a video that I shot last night.

It’s not often I see the lead of a band in khaki shorts.
