Vampire Weekend Host a Last Supper With Indie Rockers and Saxophone Bongs

by Abby Schreiber

Vampire Weekend's new video for their Modern Vampires of the City single, "Diane Young," features a Last Supper starring Pitchfork-worthy apostles like Santigold, Chromeo, Dave Longstreth of the Dirty Projectors, The Walkmen's Hamilton Leithauser, Despot and Sky Ferreira (though it's never clear who plays Judas). In the Messianic role is a sketchy balaclava-wearing guy texting on his iphone while the rest of the group pop champagne bottles, have a food fight, and take hits from a saxophone bong. The whole video is essentially a series of visual non sequiturs but it's also totally entertaining and a big step up from the flaming car visuals that previously accompanied the track.

Modern Vampires of the City is out now and you can catch the band on tour this summer making stops at Lollapalooza (August 4) and the Barclays Center (September 20).
