A terrific Indie Rock band. Vampire Weekend established their unique and unlikely sound on their debut album, which combined punk with classical, new wave, and worldbeat music. The album was terrific, but even better is their 2nd album (Contra), which, while still containing their sound from their debut album, explores genres such as synthpop, more 80's, ska, and reggae. Contra is a classic and arguably one of the greatest modern indie records ever made. They're also notable for their unique lyrics from Ezra Koenig, using unique nouns in his songwriting to make it sound really cool.

I am a huge Vampire Weekend fan, and when they announce a third album, I will freak out. They are one of the best bands ever, and will continue to impact mainstream indie rock with every album they release.
Every Vampire Weekend band member is extremely talented and all of their songs (including Ottoman) are awesome! Get their albums today!

Obama is using Vampire Weekend songs for his campaign? That might actually make me want to vote for him!

A killer band from a killer city (New York), who fuse together a seemingly unheard of combination of instruments to pretty much make there own genre: "The Upper West Side Soweto".
"Dude the debut album of Vampire Weekend is coming out in 3 days"

"Lets go wait in line"

One of the best bands of the moment. Have released two albums to date: "Vampire Weekend" and "Contra".

Best songs include, in no particular order: "Giving up the Gun", "A-Punk", "Mansard Roof", "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa", "I stand corrected", "M79", "Cousins", "The Kids don't Stand a Chance".

Vampire Weekend consists of four guys, Ezra Koenig (main singer, guitar), Rostam Batmanglij (keyboards), Chris Tomson (drums) and Chris Baio (bass guitar).
The guys from Vampire Weekend met when they were studying in Columbia.

Their awesome music is influenced by reggae, ska and afro-pop.

A vampire weekend is one in which you are staying up late, throughout the night and either not sleeping at all or catching up on sleep during the day time. Basically you are more active at night then the day.
Dude our vampire weekend so much fun, but i'm going to sleep for a couple days

A multiple day sex binge with a girl while she is on her period. Going to a concert as opening act is optional as is it being an actual weekend. Some people insist oral sex on her is a requirement. Others (Van Helsing crowd) say simply staking her repeatedly and a bloody mess is all that is required, even going as far as to suggest deflowerings be included as vampire weekends.
Yeah I am taking Katie to Vale on our honeymoon - but looks like it will be a Vampire Weekend.

A weekend that "sucks" you of energy and leaves you tired for Monday. Depending on what happened this could be a positive or negative occurrence, often both, but generally has an air of regret or hardship.
My presentation at the office is going to be terrible thanks to another vampire weekend spent clubbing with Joe and the gang.

I will be screwed if I have another vampire weekend with final exams coming up next week.
