Character actor and meme muse Steve Buscemi will sit in the director’s chair once again. But rather than tackling episodes of shows like 30 Rock and Nurse Jackie, as he has in the past, Mr. Buscemi is heading to the Roseland Ballroom.

Digital Spy reports that Mr. Buscemi has agreed to direct the live stream of a Vampire Weekend concert taking place there on April 28. Apparently, Vampire Weekend’s bassist recently discovered Mr. Buscemi is actually a distant cousin.

And with that, all of Brooklyn fell silent in awe.
