Ezra Koenig Joins Chromeo Onstage at Governors Ball for ‘Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa’

Drake may not have brought any special guests out during his headlining set at Governors Ball last night, but fortunately for festival attendees, Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig and Chromeo were on deck to pick up the slack. “There’s this guitar riff I like to play sometimes,” began the electro-funk duo’s Dave 1. He then launched into the instantly recognizable melody of “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa” from 2008’s Vampire Weekend (one of SPIN‘s Best 300 Albums of the Past 30 Years). Fellow Columbia professor Koenig then joined him onstage — “Dave, I showed you the riff, man. It’s really not that hard,” he joked — before segueing into something completely different: the equally irresistible “Bonafied Lovin’.” Watch the clip below.
