By now, just about anyone who's a fan of the "alternative" genre has heard the story of Vampire Weekend.
Admittedly, it's the kind of practically-unbelievable tale of overnight success about which most bands can only dream. Around this time last year, Vampire Weekend were playing frat parties on the Columbia University campus, where the members of the band were students. Today, they're pretty much the most talked about indie group on the planet.
Believe it or not, all the buzz actually leads to a surprisingly decent band for a change.
