Well, this week in the Magic City, we had some more insane weather events which caused major problems for some people in the area and, perhaps, smaller problems for others. Monday night was supposed to be the big Vampire Weekend indie rock concert event at Sloss Furnace but due to unforeseen, but somewhat predicted, inclement weather the show was moved to the BJCC and, ultimately, postponed (insert sad emoji or cucumber emoji or some other emoji, I don’t really know).
Due to severe weather, Vampire Weekend’s show tonight in Birmingham, AL has been POSTPONED. More info coming soon.

So, now ticket holders will wait and see when the band will come back and play a make-up show. Personally, I was looking forward to seeing Vampire Weekend but also looking forward to going to a venue I still have not been to, Sloss Furnace. Anyway, since it’s Friday and we are all still kind of bummed about missing the show I thought I’d remind everyone how we fell in love with these New York prepsters (How’s that for a typical blogger description of the band?). Here’s there 2008 breakout single “A-Punk”.
