Book cheap Amsterdam hostels to catch a Vampire Weekend performance
US indie rock band Vampire Weekend will be providing fans with a live performance when they come to the Heineken Music Hall in Amsterdam on November 23rd.

The New York-founded artists have had a wealth of success since forming back in February 2006, with those who head along to the gig after booking some cheap Amsterdam hostels sure to hear many of their stand-out tracks from their career up to now.

Some of those to have graced radiowaves include the addictive and unique sounds of Exit Music (for a Film), A-Punk and Oxford Comma – a trio of hits which, over the past half a year, have had over 110,000 plays on Last.fm each.

Vampire Weekend first hit the big time in the music industry when their self-titled debut album broke into the top 20 of both the US and UK charts, which led to the band celebrating their success with a tour that lasted almost two years.

This helped them to gain plenty of experience when it came to performing live, in which they have received critical-acclaim for.

For example, Kitty Empire reported on a review to the Guardian, when the group played at The Hippodrome in Kingston Upon Thames: "[Vampire Weekend] are quite simply a party band whose dexterity, eclecticism and education are pressed into the service of a seriously good time."

Fans who are able to book a cheap hostel in Amsterdam and see the lads upon the backdrop of a highly-entertaining European city, will be able to get into the mood by listening to tracks from their second album.

Titled Contra, the album became only the 12th independently released and distributed album to peak in the US Billboard 200 at the top spot, according to Last.fm.
