Really? Vampire Weekend? Really? I mean, I know people are largely stupid. But seriously. Vampire Weekend? Gross.
The Arts must really have it out for me lately. I go see Funny Games and buy Vampire Weekend in the same week. Double-whammy.
Tonight I am going to see Metheny. You know, a guy who can actually PLAY his instrument with a high level of skill, a higher level of musicianship, and who can make an entire album by using more than two time signatures, more than 3 keys, and probably doesn’t think people should be blown away when he adds a 7 on top of his minor chord.
Man I’m with you on Vampire Weekend. I’m usually the biggest sucker in the world for the “next big thing” bands, but those guys just aren’t doing it for me. By the way, how is Metheny live?
