Vampire Weekend covered Bob Dylan as part of their surprise set in Los Angeles over the weekend.

Vocalist / guitarist Ezra Koenig was joined by his bandmatesafter after being interviewed for GQ Live at Neuehouse Hollywood. Vampire Weekend started with the Honeycombs cover “Have I the Right,” then launched into some fan favorites before giving the first two verses of Dylan’s “Jokerman” a shot.

"Mansard Roof"
"I Think Ur a Contra"
"White Sky"

Over the summer, Koenig told the crowd at Lollapalooza that a new album was done and being mastered, but months later there’s still no word on a potential release date. Vampire Weekend has not released a new LP since 2013’s Modern Vampires of the City.
