Vampire Weekend Returns to Fillmore Miami Beach October 13, Beach House Opens!
We've lost track of the hype-backlash-hype-backlash cycle that aims to tell us whether it's currently "cool" to like Vampire Weekend or not -- but who really cares.

It was welcome proof that there is, perhaps, a market for Ivy League rock if it's groovy enough. (Please hand us a sweater, we're catching a chill down here in Hades).
