Vampire Weekend are currently on a massive world tour behind their new album Father Of The Bride, which arrived last month. This past weekend, the band swung by White River State Park in Indianapolis, IN and brought some faux-regional flair to the set: midway through "M79," they broke out into the Parks and Recreation theme song (the NBC sitcom took place in the fictional town of Pawnee, IN). Last September, Ezra Koenig and Parks and Rec star Rashida Jones welcomed their son Isaiah.

For those planning on catching VW during their extensive run, consider wearing a bucket hat to the show: the band is reportedly only taking requests from those rocking the catch-all headwear this tour. Risk the humiliation of looking like a 2014 Tumblr-head and maybe you'll get to hear "Pizza Party. "
