Goose and Vampire Weekend Joined Forces at Capitol Theatre


Goose and Vampire Weekend

Goose and Ezra Koenig, Chris Baio, and Chris Tomson from Vampire Weekend united last night at Port Chester, NY’s historic Capitol Theatre for an extended, highly improvisational performance of Vampire Weekend’s classic “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa.” Long imagined by fans (as well as an oft-referenced running joke from Vampire Weekend lead vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Ezra Koenig’s Time Crisis with Ezra Koenig internet radio show), the epic, 31–minute rendition – along with an equally elongated take on “Gen-X Cops,” from Vampire Weekend’s recently released Only God Was Above Us – can be viewed now on YouTube.



Goose and Vampire Weekend

Goose and Vampire Weekend’s first-ever joint live performance marked the culmination of Goose’s sold-out, four-night run at The Capitol Theatre, their first to see founding members Rick Mitarotonda (vocals, guitar), Peter Anspach (vocals, keys, guitar), Trevor Weekz (bass), and Jeff Arevalo (vocals, percussion, drums) joined by new drummer Cotter Ellis. Goose and Vampire Weekend’s collaborative friendship began with Goose’s remarkable cover of Vampire Weekend’s2021 (January 5th, to be exact),” featured on Vampire Weekend’s 2021 40:42 EP. Personally commissioned by Koenig – a longtime Goose fan – with the only directive to make it 20 minutes and 21 seconds long, the expansive track is accompanied by a full-length performance video.





Goose is currently set for a summer headline run getting underway Sunday, May 26 with two top-billed sets at Chillicothe, IL’s Summer Camp Presents Solshine: A Music & Arts Reverie and followed by a wide range of dates scheduled through September. Find tickets HERE
