Vampire Weekend

In my world, “new music” is pretty much anything released after 1985.  Which made an iTunes purchase this week a major event.

I bought “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa.”  You know.  “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa.”  Yeah, that “Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa.”  By Vampire Weekend. 

I was clicking here and there through the iTunes store, one click led to another, and somehow I ended up clicking on this song.  Naturally, the title hooked me.  So I listened, and I liked it. 

But before I invested my $0.99, I googled Vampire Weekend.  Four guys who met at Columbia.  But what got me was the tidbit that the singer and drummer had been members of a “comedy-rap” band called “L’Homme Run.”  This, I found irresistible.  They were worth the $0.99, if only for that.

I went into work, and proudly informed the kids I bought something by Vampire Weekend.  I was waiting for, “Wow, you’re into Vampire Weekend?  Cool.”  Instead I got, “Who?”

And then, Debra Alfarone, the fabulous Debra Alfarone, whipped out her iPhone and started playing Vampire Weekend.  Hey, if Alfarone knows, then I’m plugged in.

And with that, have yourselves a Vampire Weekend.  I will, because, after all, Friday is the new Saturday.

  1. A couple of things. I like the music. Kind of The Police meet They Might Be Giants ( Now THERE is a sci fi concept ) And any group that has the word ” vampire ” in it is bound for glory. Vampires are hot.

    Vampires are still pretty hot, but according to the Publishing sector, zombies are the new hot thing in books. However, a recent journal publication announced that zombies are out and witches are in. I don’t know what’s coming next! Give me a good old human boy meets girl kind of plot. Enjoy your weekend….you’ve got 2 good days. Sunday’s going to rain, so having to work isn’t going to be so bad.
