A Second Chance for Vampire Weekend Tickets

By Fritz Hahn

This morning, Vampire Weekend's Dec. 1 show at the 9:30 club sold out in less than two hours. (Not bad for a band that made its D.C. debut before a couple dozen people last summer at the Red and the Black.)

If you didn't hear about the concert until now, that's because it wasn't announced in the 9:30 club's print ads or in the long schedule on its Web site -- the only mention came in small type at the bottom of the club's weekly e-mail newsletter.

Well, you can stop kicking yourselves for missing it. A second show has been added on Dec. 2, and you can get tickets right now through (scroll to the bottom of the page) for $20 plus the usual service charges.

I scored in the soft sale too! Do you think we'll find out why Blake's got a new face??

Not only will we find out why Blake's got a new face, we'll find out why the kids don't stand a chance!

I saw them at the R&R Hotel last winter. They are OK, but don't even come close to the hype. Not worth fretting about not seeing live. Average at best live and don't really do anything to enhance or change up their songs.

you know, i have to say that i'm not a huge fan of vampire weekend and don't necessarily want to see them in concert; but as a person who receives 9:30's weekly emails, i'm annoyed that you told everybody about this. it's a soft sale for a reason ... to give priority to the 9:30 faithful.
