Vampire Weekend to play Hollywood Bowl on Sept. 28

Southern Californians who missed Vampire Weekend at Coachella over the last two weekends will get another chance to see the New York indie-pop band before long.

On Sept. 28, Vampire Weekend is to play the Hollywood Bowl, the venerable outdoor venue announced Monday, adding to a summer season that already includes shows by She & Him with Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell (on June 23), Damian & Stephen Marley (on June 30) and Diana Ross (on Aug. 3).

Tickets for the concert -- which will also feature Beirut, the globe-tripping gypsy-folk band led by singer-songwriter Zach Condon -- go on sale May 4.

Following closely on its Coachella appearances, Vampire Weekend is set to release a new studio album, "Modern Vampires of the City," on May 14. The disc was recorded partly in L.A. with producer Ariel Rechtshaid and serves as the anticipated follow-up to 2010's "Contra," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Look for a feature on Vampire Weekend in Calendar in the coming weeks, and listen to "Step," from the new album, below.
