Sophmore Slump? On the Contra

There's no use denying it. The second album from Vampire Weekend is good. Really good. It's been just long enough since I digested their self-titled first album. And as the gray skies, the sleet, and the cold wind try to bring me down, Contra is forcing me to look forward to brighter, warmer days. No doubt I will feel like an old man at the playground and it won't compare to their first show, but I'm also looking forward to their April 3rd show - even though it's at the retched DAR Constitution Hall.

Nice post title.
I've only heard a couple songs off the new one, and I too thought they were pretty good.

DAR though? That's crazy. They aredefinitely more of a 930 Club band, even if it means doing 2 shows. Though that horrible Owl City dude is playing DAR as well. Go figure.

Yeah, DAR blows. I guess they can get more $$ there than at 930. Otherwise, it doesn't make sense. The venue sucks in every respect.
