Vampire Weekend Get Weed-y And Weird At ‘Diane Young’ Dinner Party

Band's new video gives us food fights, espresso-machine love and a whole new use for a saxophone.

Vampire Weekend’s Modern Vampires of the City just debuted at #1 on the Billboard albums chart, and they undoubtedly wanted to celebrate … which at least partially explains their new “Diane Young” video.

In the clip, VW throw a Last Supper/séance soiree and invite some of their pals (including Santigold, Dirty Projectors main man David Longstreth and professionally affected singer Sky Ferreira, to name just a few). Frontman Ezra Koenig buddies up with a dude in a balaclava. Drummer Chris Tomson engages in a shouting match with Chromeo. Bassist Chris Baio tenderly caresses an espresso machine. There are sparklers and silly string and champagne and at one point, someone uses a saxophone as a bong … so, y’know, it’s educational too.
