Weird things happen when you’re in Vampire Weekend and related to Steve Buscemi
Be careful when you mess around on one of those family tree websites. It could lead to finding out that you are related to acclaimed actor Steve Buscemi, and then things are bound to get strange. That’s what happened to Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio. After discovering that he had distant ties to the Boardwalk Empire star, Baio connected with Buscemi, who ended up signing on to direct the band’s show at Roseland Ballroom in New York City on April 28. The show is to help promote Vampire Weekend’s new album Modern Vampires in the City, which comes out on May 14, and Buscemi is doing everything he can to spread the word. So be on the lookout for an email from Buscemi’s AOL account.
