The pop band Vampire Weekend drew 2,000 fans to the Fox Theater in Pomona on Wednesday evening. The line to get in wrapped around three-fourths of the block: west along Third, south along Thomas and east along Fourth almost to Garey. The line also folded back into the alley between the Fox and the Prog building. Whew!
The Chino band Abe Vigoda, on a national tour with Vampire Weekend as the opening act, were greeted as hometown heroes, and Vampire Weekend didn’t disappoint with its bouncy, rhythmic pop. The band had played the smaller Glass House two blocks away in September 2008 but now has two albums, and more songs, to choose from. The Fox gig was a great show. Were you there?
