A College Band Makes it Big: Vampire Weekend

vampire weekend

In 2006, Columbia University students Ezra Koenig, Chris Baio, Rostam Batmanglij and Chris Tomson formed a band in what was the last year of school for most of them. With a humble beginning of recording songs in dorm rooms and performing at campus events, Vampire Weekend has since become one of the top indie bands.

Word spread quickly about Vampire Weekend's unique sound. With an eclectic mix of musical styles and quirky lyrics (one song, "Oxford Comma," is about the proper use of a comma), they earned attention from the music industry and signed with XL Recordings. Their official self-titled debut album was released in 2008, and their songs made it to Rolling Stone's Top 100 Songs of the Year, as well as a variety of film and television shows -- including Will Ferrell's comedy, "Step Brothers."

This year, they released their second album, "Contra." It debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 -- which made it only the 12th independently-distributed album to top the chart since 1991. They stopped by the show to perform their hit song, "Holiday." Check it out right here.

help a puppy

A 1.5-year-old Boxer/American Bulldog mix named Firu needs your help! He was recently dragged behind his owner's truck and is currently healing from the terrible ordeal. The local Animal Control agency has taken him away from his owner and a woman named Samantha Hodge has graciously agreed to take care of him.

Firu will recover, but he has a long road ahead of him. The vet is going to need a lot of help to make sure that Firu has everything he needs to get well -- and you can provide it.

He is currently staying with Samantha's vet, Dr. Tom Wallrich, and will be put up for adoption when he is ready.

If you would like to help Firu, you can send donations to the vet clinic:
