Vampire Weekend To Serve As Metro Guest Editors

The members of Vampire Weekend have two #1 albums, three SNL appearances, and many festival headlining sets under their belts. Now, they will venture into journalism on September 12 as Ezra Koenig, Rostam Batmanglij, Chris Tomson, and Chris Baio serve as guest editors for the daily Metro newspapers in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. The band will choose subject matter to be covered by the publications while curating a special section devoted to the best foods in New York City.
