Vampire Weekend has recently exploded onto the music scene with their clean beats and appeal to the academic crowd. Hailing from New York, these preppy musicians flew all the way to Hawaii last night to play, and of course I had to catch them. They are amazing live–super clean, high-energy and very cool. Their debut album is such a hit, please check it out and support them! They sound like afro-pop meets Cape Cod breezyness–perfect to play on the beach in the summertime. I'll be going to see them at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, which I expect to be way bigger and better than last night. Their next stops are down under in New Zealand and Australia (yes, they got big FAST!) Click here to visit their webpage.
