Watch Grimes turn down Steve Buscemi's offer to go for brunch with Vampire Weekend

The electronic-pop artist gives the actor and director the brush-off in the promo clip

In a new promo video for the Steve Buscemi directed Vampire Weekend concert at New York’s Roseland Ballroom on April 28, Grimes turns down the Hollywood actor's offer of brunch with the band.

Click above to watch the short clip, which trails the fourth part of the American Express Unstaged gig series, which will be streamed via VEVO and YouTube. Previous episodes of the concert programme have featured the likes of Usher, Jack White and The Killers, whose show was directed by filmmaker Werner Herzog.

The clip follows other videos including one in which Buscemi awkwardly meets Vampire Weekend and accidentally calls them Vampire Holiday.

In a statement, Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig described Buscemi as "a wonderful actor, a NYC legend and a great director". Buscemi has previously directed several episodes of the US drama The Sopranos as well as four feature films, including 1996's Trees Lounge.

Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio recently revealed that Buscemi was a distant cousin.

Buscemi was spotted with the band at the New York Easter Bonnet festival where he sung the group's latest single 'Diane Young' through a loudhailer.

Vampire Weekend will release their third album 'Modern Vampires Of The City' on May 14.
