Every so often, the stars seem to align at SXSW and an act hits the fest just as they seep into the mainstream. Two years ago, the Arctic Monkeys began to really breakthrough as they hit Austin, this year Vampire Weekend seems to getting even wider awareness as they arrive at the fest (witness the recent SPIN Magazine cover). The band played the annual SPIN party today, pictured here during their Stubb's set. Their official South By gig is tonight at Antone's.
