Second concert in Red Butte Garden Summer Lineup Announced


Here are a couple of hints as to who will play this pre-Memorial Day show at Red Butte: This Brooklyn-based indie band’s music has teeth, which caused many critics to go bat crazy back in 2007, when their first song -- which was about a roof --l it up the airwaves.---

The 2008 self-titled debut was a hit because of the band’s use of African polyrhythms and an overall fresh approach to songwriting. Their follow-up, Contra, debuted on the Billboard charts at No. 1, a mark that they hope to land (and most likely will) with a forthcoming 2013 release, Modern Vampires of the City. Ezra Koenig has described the upcoming album as "darker and more organic" and "very much the last of a trilogy.”

That was probably too easy. Red Butte Garden announced today that Vampire Weekend will hit the outdoor stage on May 21.
