Vampire Weekend @ Somerset House

I managed to see Vampire Weekend play a free gig, to promote their new album ‘Contra’, at Somerset House a few nights ago. It was ace. They are my band of the moment – I can’t help but dance every time I listen to them.
They were on a balcony overlooking the winter ice rink (with colourful lighting which made the atmosphere really nice) and played a variety of their afro pop tunes including one of my all time favourites, ‘A Punk’.  A few hundred people turned up for it and although it was pretty cold everyone bounced along to the tunes. Somerset House is a great venue especially in the summer when they have the Film4 screenings, oh yes.
Hopefully this will be the first of many more gigs this year!
