"Who Gives A Fuck About An Oxford Comma?

So, yes, we saw Vampire Weekend play a CD release show at the Virgin Mega-Store in Union Square last night. Yes, it was alot of fun and the kidz were out in droves. Needless to say, the hype is off the charts and everyone I know seems to be humming "Oxford Comma." While the short set made up of VW staples like "Mansard Roof", "A-Punk", "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa", the aforementioned "Oxford Comma" and new jam "M-79", was fun and had Union Square grooving, we couldn't help but register the absurd amount of hype the evening seemed fueled by. Fortunately, VW stands the test of time, as I'm in month 7 or 8 of shacking up with the Blue Cd-R and the songs are still fresh. Maybe not heady, organic fresh anymore, but still fresh. Pretty soon your parents will be jamming out to "CCKK" on the morning commute. Which raises a good question, should Feist be worried?
