Watch Vampire Weekend's Steve Buscemi-Directed Concert

Following their gently hilarious series of videos with Steve Buscemi (think Christopher Guest gone Portlandia), Vampire Weekend are streaming Sunday's entire Buscemi-directed NYC concert online.

The 90-minute set features sprightly favorites from their first two albums as well as the shockingly rockin' "Diane Young" from their upcoming third, Modern Vampires of the City. The Roseland Ballroom show also features the debut of two previously unheard tunes, the quiet ballad "Obvious Bicycle" and the Farfisa organ-filled "Everlasting Arms."

Watch the full concert above and check out the two new tunes below, and if you live in New York and missed this show, you can still catch 'em headlining (!) Barclays Center on September 20. If you don't live on the East Coast, there's always their May 11 Saturday Night Live appearance, which we can only pray involves them joining host Kristen Wiig for a sketch.
