I’m off to a VAMPIRE WEEKEND in Auckland!
What can I say about these guys to give you an idea of their wittiness and class?
Founded in 2006, they became well known in the so-called indie-rock circles through blogs, they were the first band to make the cover for Spin magazine before they had even released an album!
His avant-garde highness Mr David Byrne gave a gracious review of one of their early gigs in his e-journal.
Debut album out in 2008, second one released last January and they are still using those African and Caribbean rythms as well as they did on their first (think Paul Simon).
These guys are ice cold, make sure to give them a go!
