Exclusive video: Vampire Weekend's secret Boston show

VAMPIRE WEEKEND don't do a ton of these, but prior to headlining the Orpheum last week, they stopped by Woodward at the Ames Hotel to play a quick, mostly-unplugged set for a select few lucky WFNX listeners. Ezra had a cold, so they only did three songs: the new "White Sky" off Contra, plus "I Stand Corrected" and "A-Punk" from their debut. We've got all three for you below. Also check out the interview above, where the band discusses the lack of Massachusetts references on the new album, Hot Tub Time Machine, and their oddly intimate relationship with the Airborne Toxic Event.
