Vampire Weekend Info:

Vampire Weekend is an American rock band from New York City, formed in 2006. The band members met while enrolled at Columbia University, beginning with a rap collaboration between Koenig and Tomson.

They bonded over a shared love of punk rock and African music, and Koenig toured with The Dirty Projectors during a period of experimentation with African music, inspiring the band to incorporate world sounds in their early work. -Wikipedia
