Vampire Weekend and actor Steve Buscemi have been spending a lot of time together lately, with Buscemi slated to direct the band’s live webcast from New York’s Roseland Ballroom on April 28.

In advance of the concert, Buscemi and the band teamed up this past Easter Sunday to take part in the annual New York City Easter Parade, where they handed out chocolate eggs and Buscemi belted out his own version of Vampire Weekend’s latest single, “Diane Young,” on a bullhorn.

A new comedic video released today (April 16) reveals the first time the band met the actor, who is allegedly related to Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio. The clip finds Buscemi awkwardly interacting with the band members, from mistaking the wrong Chris as his relative (drummer Chris Tomson) to fiddling with their gear while they rehearse, even going so far as to join in on keyboards and percussion while they play.

 

Vampire Weekend recently dazzled the crowd at the first weekend of Coachella 2013, showcasing new songs from the upcoming third studio album, Modern Vampires of the City, due out May 14 on XL.

“So far we’ve released ‘Step’ and ‘Diane Young,'” guitarist/keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij told KROQ when VW stopped by the station’s Party House at Coachella. “If you want crazier songs than ‘Diane Young,’ there are a couple that get a little crazier. If you want more mellow, there’s a couple that are a little more mellow than ‘Step.’ We feel like we’re giving people a taste of what’s to come, but we’re not really even revealing the extremes.”

After playing New York’s Roseland Ballroom for the Buscemi-directed webcast, the band jaunts over to London for one night before returning to North America with shows in Boston (May 15), Detroit (May 17) and Portland (May 23).
