With it’s recent Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album, Vampire Weekend bites into a variety of styles with inspiration from Afro-pop and rock music of the past. Formed in New York City in 2006, and taking its name from a failed film project, the band rose to the top of the music world with the trajectory of a silver bullet. Teeming with deep synth bass and infectious beats set off by melodies that burrow into your psyche, VW has put its stake in the ground for an extended stay.

Tuesday 6/10. (sold out) $41, 7pm. nTelos Wireless Pavilion, 700 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4910.
