Meet Your New New Vampire Weekend

Written by

Last night’s Postcrpyt show featured a breakout performance by a one Mr.Anthony Da Costa of Pleasantville, New York. According to eyewitnesses, Columbia’s next great folk-music lady-killer already has Postscrypters (men and women, actually) completely swooning.

Oh, and he’s only 17 years old. In a move that only heightened his adorableness, he brought along his dad, who videotaped the show. “His voice is like honey, he has a Harry Potter aesthetic, he hunches over when he plays the guitar and does this thing where mid-chorus he’ll just nudge up his glasses a touch,” said an audience member, mid-swoon.

Da Costa hopes to join Blake Lively and Jim Cramer’s daugher in the class of ’13, and Bwog’s heard that the people of Postcrypt are writing him an additional letter of recommendation.

But until your new crush arrives on campus, you can get your fill of Da Costa’s music on his MySpace. Or with this New York Times profile. Or his official website.

    The best band on campus is Life Sized Maps. By far. I think they're one Myspace page away from potential stardom...
