This was my first of two real shows seeing Vampire Weekend on their current tour. The next will be in Chicago on March 25. This was also the first time I was to hear a concert at the Riverside Theater. I had heard that it was the best place to hear music in Milwaukee and it did not disappoint.
I should start by saying that my Vampire Weekend day started earlier than most because I had won a chance to see them do an acoustic show at a place called Mikey's from the local radio station. Their acoustic show was great, Ezra Koenig hits the notes just as well as the album and they are really friendly guys!
Now all bragging aside, after that was over we headed over to the Riverside to wait in line. It was pretty crazy how many people were already in line when we got there (about 2 hours before the doors opened). So we were around 20th in line, waiting patiently outside in the cold.
