Steve Buscemi - Steve Buscemi Directing Vampire Weekend Concert

Steve Buscemi is teaming up with his newfound cousin, Vampire Weekend star Chris Baio, to direct a live stream of the band's upcoming New York gig.

Baoi was researching his family tree when he recently discovered he is a distant relative of the Boardwalk Empire star, and now they are teaming up on a new project.

Actor/director Buscemi will take charge of the cameras when the band hits the stage in the Big Apple later this month (Apr13) to launch the fourth season of American Express Unstaged, an online concert series that pairs notable directors with popular music acts.

Baoi tells RollingStone.com, "He really is a great director. Growing up, I was a huge Sopranos fan and one of my favourite episodes is The Pine Barrens, which he directed... I feel safe in his hands."

Vampire Weekend’s concert will take place at the Roseland Ballroom in Manhattan on 28 April (13) and will stream live to fans on video sharing websites Vevo.com and YouTube.com.
