Watch Vampire Weekend take on Oasis and Phoenix covers in Houston

Vampire Weekend were taking requests at their Houston show this week, leading to them attempting covers of Oasis and Phoenix – check out the footage below.The New York band were kicking off their North American tour in the Texan city on Thursday (June 6), in support of new album ‘Only God Was Above Us’.Returning for their encore, they took requests for Phoenix’s ‘1901’, Oasis’ ‘Wonderwall’ and Crowded House’s ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’. The performances were impromptu as they tackled songs they had never played before, and hence were left somewhat incomplete, but as you can see from the footage, both band and audience were enjoying the moment.Super fun encore at @vampireweekend’s first tour stop in Houston last night.
