No, Ezra Koenig and company aren't touring with the 89-year-old character actor from The Godfather and Look Who's Talking films (though, given the Brooklyn rockers' addiction to quirk, they might have considered it). Abe Vigoda — a rising, rousing Los Angeles quartet — spikes the punch of Vampire Weekend's calypso-cribbing, indie-crossover smash Contra (XL). Tickets $23.50.
