Jambands: For Indie Rockers, Jambands No Longer a Shameful Word [ClickTrack]
On Saturday, Vampire Weekend will headline at Merriweather Post Pavilion. It will be the New York-based indie-rock quartet’s first gig at the Maryland amphitheater, but for the band’s drummer, Chris Tomson, the show will mark an anniversary of sorts.
“My first Phish show was at Merriweather Post Pavilion,” the 26-year-old explains over the phone, from his home in New York. “That was September 17th of 2000. Karmically, in some weird way, I feel pretty awesome about that.”
