Summer is winding down for 2019, but that doesn’t mean summer 2020 isn’t already starting to heat up. Never mind oxford commas, because Vampire Weekend is headed to Bend next summer.
The indie rock and a pop group are known for singles such as “Horchata,” “Mansard Roof” and yes, “Oxford Comma,” will make its debut in the city at Les Schwab Amphitheater on Aug 9. The early announcement for next season comes as this year’s season is still well underway, with shows from Gary Clark Jr. (Sept. 14) and Robert Plant (Oct. 3) still on the docket.
Vampire Weekend, which formed in the mid-2000s in New York City, broke onto the national scene in 2008 with its self-titled debut album. The band is currently touring behind its fourth studio album and first in six years, “Father of the Bride.” Les Schwab Amphitheater has officially announced its first show for next season, and well, it’s a big one. Vampire Weekend is making a stop in Bend for the band’s Father of the Bride Tour 2020.
Vampire weekend has been making noise and stealing hearts of music fans ever since it debuted in 2008 with its self-titled album. They dipped off the radar for a while after their third album released, waiting five years before the fourth until this year when “Father of the Bride” came out. It was a special time for indie-rock fans to have new music back from the brainchild of Ezra Koenig.
