A Weekend of Vampires


Photos by Yumiko

Major apologies for the hiatus! This a bit late, about two months late actually, but nonetheless! In the beginning of September, I attended one of the three Vampire Weekend concerts. It was beautiful and probably one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to. I don’t even have the words to describe the evening! I left Radio City Music Hall with the remnants of tunes, a vinyl version of Contra, and a t-shirt. If you don’t know who Vampire Weekend or Ezra Koenig are, you should without excuse look them up.

Another concert, another pair of sore toes. Saturday, my brother and I went to a Crystal Castles concert at Terminal 5. One word to describe the night: ACE. The music was unbelievable; it should be a crime to not have danced. I was surprised I had enough energy to keep dancing until 2am, especially since Destructo and Sinden, who opened for Crystal Castles, performed so phenomenally. I left with a muffled sound in my ears and my new Crystal Castles t-shirt. I guess you could say it was an incredible evening.

One Life Stand

Last Wednesday, my brother and I spent the rest of the afternoon and evening at Central Park Summerstage. Awesome food and music! Performing were Hot Chip, Holy Ghost!, and Hercules and Love Affair. We commenced our late afternoon excitement with some veggie dogs and complimentary coconut water, then wandered across the fake lawn (fawn?). And ate a cup of banana chip ice cream, can’t ignore the ice cream! The entire night was fantastic, and we left after Hot Chip’s encore with sore toes and complete clamminess. But it was utterly worth it.

Last night, my friend Cara and I went to another, but smaller concert at Webster Hall. We didn’t take pictures of the bands but still had a rad time jumping around and avoiding being shoved by sporadic and sort of fake mosh pits (fosh pits? mosh fits?). On the bright side, we went to Momofuku for a lovely pre-concert meal. We shared a bowl of soft serve, that was of a very peculiar flavor. I often enjoy tasting new flavors, especially when it comes to frozen yogurt, but their soft serve flavor was Sweet Pea. I honestly can’t say if I liked it or not, it was just…different. Also found my new favorite market and a Chinese bistro that’s supposedly really good called Plump Dumpling, possible deliciousness?

She & Him + 102˚

Oh how I love the month of July. . .especially since today happened to be 102˚ F! Regardless, I spent my late afternoon/evening at a lovely She & Him concert @ Terminal 5. Arriving at around 6 o’clock, my brother, my friend, and I waited to see the show for at least 3 hours (a little ridiculous but completely worth the wait!) Besides the spectacular performance, the outfits the lead singer, Zooey Deschanel, and the backup singers, the Chapin sisters, wore were almost as memorable. Zooey was wearing a periwinkle blue 60s-ish dress. One of the Chapin sisters was wearing a mini floral dress, and the other was wearing a lacey white dress with grey tights. Everything about the performance was delightful; the attire was just the cherry on top. The only bad thing about the concert was the incapability to take pictures, yet I took a blurry one anyway.

On the other hand, some of the concert goers had on interesting choices for outfits. Example #1, three people were dressed as Athenian gods… Example #2, a girl, who was at least 19 was carrying a hot pink cupcake backpack on her chest. And her friend was wearing frilly socks with Mary Jane’s, in this scorching weather! How could you not wear sandals when it’s more than 100˚ outside?

P.S. The veggie dogs, from Asiadog, served on the rooftop deck at Terminal 5 were delicious.
