Performer Info

Vampire Weekend: Vampire Weekend is an indie rock band from New York City signed to XL Recordings. Despite the band members' occasionally preppy style, they are influenced by both African popular music and Western Classical Music. They describe their genre of music as "Upper West Side Soweto", performing such songs as "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa," which references Congolese soukous music.

The members of the band -- Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij, Chris Tomson, and Chris Baio -- met while attending Columbia University.
