Vampire Weekend coming to Jannus Live



Nothing could have made us happier today than the news we're about to share with you: Vampire Weekend is coming to Jannus Live in St. Petersburg on Oct. 12.

We were stoked enough that they were coming to Orlando's Hard Rock Live. In fact, when that show was announced, we practically begged some local promoter to step up and bring them to the Ritz or Jannus.

Looks like that promoter was Jack Spatafora of Aestheticized Presents. Congrats, Jack, you just won the week here at Soundcheck! (Readers, be sure to thank him yourself this Thursday at Deer Tick/Dead Confederate at Crowbar. Tickets still available!)

Tickets to Vampire Weekend (with openers Beach House and The Very Best!) go onsale this Friday, though we don't have a price just yet. We'll update you when we hear something.

*** UPDATE*** Tickets are $29.50. Steal of the century, people. Come on, make this show sell out early. Prove to the world that we can have nice things here in Tampa Bay.
