Vampire Weekend Find New Gig As Newspaper Editors
The guys of Vampire Weekend are making good use of their fancy Columbia degrees with their latest venture.
The band has announced they will guest edit the September 12th edition of the daily Metro newspaper in Boston, New York and Philadelphia. The international newspaper chain, which started in Stockholm, Sweden in 1995, has editions in cities all over the world including Paris, Rio de Janeiro and Seoul, South Korea.
Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij, Chris Tomson and Chris Baio’s special guest position as assistant editors for the day has them working together with the paper’s staff to help choose what news stories should be covered. The band will also curate a special section that focuses on the best foods in New York City.
Vampire Weekend previously showed their love of print when back in February they announced the release of their most recent album, Modern Vampires Of The City, in the classified section of the New York Times.
