Vampire Weekend Roundup
Written by Bwog Staff
Columbia’s current favorite sons, Vampire Weekend, seem to be doing pretty well for themselves lately. With their full-length album coming out in three days and two sold-out shows at Bowery Ballroom kicking off a national tour next week. “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa” was Rolling Stone‘s 67th best song of the year, and a snarky Pitchfork review can’t be more than two weeks in coming, considering the backlash that we’ve seen — without an album even having been released!
On the local front, Columbian Jared Hecht passed along his interview with the group, over at Jambands. The phrase “Upper West Side Soweto” appears more than once.
(If you still haven’t heard VW, there are some pretty good free samples on Daytrotter.)
