Probably one of the dumbest videos I’ve ever seen; however, I can’t help but enjoy it.

I saw Vampire Weekend at the Ryman last night. This was my view:
I understand that it’s not his fault he’s tall but this dude was 2 rows in front of me. I’m 5’9” on a good day so this made it difficult to see. Other than my view and the guy that smelled like he hadn’t bathed since last year’s Bonnaroo sitting next to me it was a killer show. If you get the chance to see VW, do it.
Not too bad. The song is growing on me. I don’t have many cousins so I can’t really relate. What I can relate to is VW coming to Nashville in April. I just copped two tickets. Again not too bad.
*Cop as a verb might be my new go-to word in 2010. Get used to it, ok?
Vampire Weekend’s new album Contra comes out next Tuesday. From what I’ve heard so far I’m pretty excited. I hope the sophomore slump doesn’t bite them on the ass. Rolling Stone reviewed it this week and gave it four out five stars. Read the review here.
I still love these guys.
I like this video too. Know what else I like? Weirdie babes. Chicks with an edge are hot.
I subscribe to the Bob Lefsetz newsletter and I don’t know why. It’s terrible. When I first started reading a year ago, I liked how honest he was. The music industry needed change and I felt like he was the only one who REALLY understood. A year and several hundred newsletters later, I wonder why the hell I’ve listened to this douche bag so closely.
Bob is old. It’s evident in his music taste. However, I started really losing interest when he began dissecting new country music. For 4 weeks straight every newsletter was about Little Big Town or Kenny Chesney or some other cheeseball country act. And then he switched modes and started jerking off to lame ass forgettable 70’s acts. I mean seriously who’s ever heard of some of these people. Spirit?
Well now I’m officially done with his newsletter. I read one this weekend about Vampire Weekend on Letterman. He hated their performance:
Vampire Weekend’s album might be better than their live show. But last night on Letterman, I just saw more white boys playing thin rock. I laughed to myself, wondering why everybody was wasting so much time on this evanescent act. I switched the channel.
Wow Bob how out of touch with new music are you? I went looking for their performance on youtube (see below) and I saw something totally different. I saw a young new band playing music for all the right reasons. Yeah they’ve been ridiculously hyped and the “hoi polloi” now know about them, but they’re young. They’ve got passion and a new sound. Aren’t you sick of emo? I know I am. Go away FOB!
Bob Lefsetz is an OLD music fan – a nobody. A guy who couldn’t cut it as a label head and now he’s bitter and thinks he understands everything their is to know about the music business. He’s not in tune with what the kids are doing or what’s REALLY happening. He’s a jerk off.
Here’s that Vampire Weekend clip from Letterman the other night:
These guys are really really good. I’m serious. If you didn’t go purchase their debut album yesterday, then go do it today. The whole thing is great – not a bad track on there. I wish we could help make Vampire Weekend one of the biggest acts in the world, but knowing the amazing music taste of the American people I know they’d much rather get the new T-Pain disc. You can never get enough of “(Shawty) Buy You A Drank.”
*NOTE: I don’t think T-Pain has a new album out. I was just using him as the flavor of the month for the American people.
