Vampire Weekend & Danielle Haim Team Up For Cover of Thin Lizzy's 'The Boys are Back in Town': Watch

94

Vampire Weekend and Haim singer Danielle Haim  teamed up for a cover Thin Lizzy's 1976 Jailbreak single, "The Boys are Back in Town" on Sunday night (July 29) at Fuji Rock Festival in Yuzawa, Japan. 

The collaborative performance was undoubtedly light-hearted. Ezra Koenig and Haim traded verses while VW guitarist Brian Robert Jones nailed the iconic solo underneath the light a full moon. Despite a video posted by VW  the musicians practicing the song right before hitting the stage, the cover went smoothly.    

Vampire Weekend have been working on their follow-up to 2013's, Modern Vampires the City and recently performed a new song in California. Haim, on-the-other-hand, is currently touring in support their 2017 release, Something to Tell You. The group was also hilariously parodied by Nicki Minaj for a Saturday Night Live skit in May. 

The four-day Japanese festival also sets from Mac Demarco, N.E.R.D., Post Malone, Kendrick Lamar and Skrillex
