Hey, if you need something to do Sunday night while you DVR Game of Thrones, Vampire Weekend is performing at Tribeca, Steve Buscemi is directing it, and YouTube is streaming it.
This concert marks the 12th in the American Express Unstaged series, and partnership with AMEX, YouTube, and VEVO.
“On Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, Vampire Weekend will perform a concert directed by none other than award-winning actor, director and producer Steve Buscemi to close out this year’s Tribeca Film Festival. And the best news of all is that you won’t need tickets to the Roseland Ballroom to take in the show. You can experience the entire event from the comfort of your couch via YouTube.”
If it seems odd that Steve Buscemi would be directing a Vampire Weekend concert, well, it’s not. First off, this kind of thing has happened before (famous Hollywood figures directing YouTube concerts) and second, this:
EXCITING NEWS – Chris Baio has been working on a family tree for months and just discovered he is a distant cousin of actor Steve Buscemi

Makes more sense now, huh?
Vampire Weekend’s new album, Modern Vampires in the City, will be released on May 6th (U.K) and May 7th (U.S.). You can check out Vampire Weekend’s YouTube channel here, which is also where you’ll find the concert at 9 pm Sunday.
