(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ Team Vampire Weekend is celebrating its third anniversary today!
When I started Team Vampire Weekend three years ago, I never imagined that it would become as big as it is now. It never crossed my mind that the blog would have its contents linked on reputable media outlets (Consequence of Sound, Pitchfork, Spin, Stereogum, Rolling Stone, MTV, Vulture, The New York Times blog to name a few) and would reach thousands of Vampire Weekend fans on and outside Tumblr. I never expected that the dubs themselves and their management would appreciate all the hard work I put into the blog, that they would arrange a special meet and greet for me and help me arrange a surprise meet and greet for my best friend. I never thought that Ezra Koenig himself would tell me that the blog is an “important part of the VW Community”, call it “the most respected Vampire Weekend news source on the internet”, thank me for all the “good work” I do and call me a “pillar” and the dubs’ “five star general”. How crazy is that right?
Running the blog has been a fun, crazy and surreal experience. It taught me a lot of things that could help me in my future endeavors—-how to sort out my priorities, how to survive 48 hours with no sleep (this happened when the MVOTC onslaught was in full swing and iced coffee was my savior), how to never be afraid to step out of my comfort zone to get what I have always wanted, how to let go of petty issues and choose my battles (the ignore/block button on Tumblr is your best friend), etc.
Anyway, before I get too emo, I would like to thank everybody who has supported Team Vampire Weekend over the years. Thank you to those kind souls who have told me that they appreciate the time and effort that I put into the blog (messages like those make me tear up every time). Thank you to all of my friends who have been with me through thick and thin (you know who you are), most especially to my best friend who has been there for me during the best and worst times. Thanks for always having my back, bb. You are my rock and our friendship is definitely one of the most important things that I got from this experience. Thank you to Vampire Weekend and their management, for always being so nice and kind to me.
And to YOU, who is reading this post, thank you. Thanks for being in this journey with me and here’s to many more years of sharing the love and respect for Ezra, Rostam, Chris and Chris.

vampire weekend🎉

The story’s been told time and again that Vampire Weekend were once just four guys bouncing around Columbia University making music before they hit it big. While at Columbia, frontman Ezra Koenig was an English and Creative Writing major and contributed to on-campus publications.

A 2006 edition of Quarto, the undergraduate literary magazine of the university’s creative writing department, was recently unearthed. In it, you can find a five-paragraph short story called “Off the Grid” by Koenig, then a college senior. It deals with themes familiar to any Vampire Weekend fan: love, New York, finding your place in the world. Also, his contributor’s bio is as prescient as prescient gets:

Ezra Koenig is a senior English and Creative Writing major. He enjoys writing short prose pieces and pop songs, especially about post-hippie domesticity and the tenuous connection between preppiness and colonialism.
