Vampire Weekend and Beach House stopped through Chicago earlier this month, part of a nationwide tour filled with indie jams and dance grooves.
 

Vampire Weekend are currently in the midst of a nationwide fall tour, recently performing to a sold out crowd at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago.  Acting as support are Beach House.  The band provided a lengthy set full of songs from both of their self-titled release as well as the recent Contra, with the setlist consisting of songs such as “A-Punk”, “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa”, “Cousins”, “Giving Up the Gun”, and even performed a Bruce Springsteen cover with “I’m Going Down”.
