Vampire Weekend are on a southern US tour swing with opener Christone “Kingfish” Ingram, a young blues guitarist from Mississippi, and on Tuesday evening in Austin, TX—the first of three shows in the city—the headlining band welcomed out Ingram for a Neil Young cover during their set for ACL Live at The Moody Theater.
Vampire Weekend filled their 22-song set and five-song encore with plenty of tunes from their latest studio album, this year’s Father of the Bride, along with older cuts like “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa,” “M79,” “Diane Young,” “Holiday” and more. As JamBase reports, near the end of the their regular set, the band brought out 20-year-old Ingram, who lent his blues guitar and voice to an appropriately titled collaboration on Neil Young’s “Vampire Blues,” a debut for Vampire Weekend.
Check out the full setlist below, along with some fan-shot clips of the show and Young cover via Instagram. Vampire Weekend and Ingram return to The Moody Theater tonight for round two.

Austin Day Three (cont.)- Got a last minute ticket to see Vampire Weekend at the Moody Theater and it was INCREDIBLE! I've been longing to see them for a long time and it was very much worth the wait. Their music can be quite intricate at times and that reallly comes across in the live performance. New material sounds fantastic, Kingfish (support act) was awesome, some amazing solos and special effects. So so satisfying 😊❤🌎 #austintexas #austin #texas #acllive #austincitylimits #moodytheater #vampireweekend #fatherofthebride #fatherofthebrideworldtour #kingfish #livemusiccapitaloftheworld
