Paul Simon Vampire Weekend – 2008-03-26

March 27th, 2008

I truly am the king of wit and original comedy.

No but seriously, these guys are good and I like them a lot. That’s why I took the time to purchase tickets (Ten bucks? Bitch, please) and go to the show. I even took the time to stand perfectly still so I could get a good recording.

I had to stealth this one because I messaged them on Myspace about recording the show and they never got back to me. So I got back to them. By recording it like a motha. I figure they’re cool with it. They seem like the kinda guys who, if they stumbled upon this site, would be all “Hey this guy is cool. We’re cool with this.” And then we’d high five each other and drink some Rainier tallboys while we talk about our favorite episodes of the popular late-eighties comedy Perfect Strangers (mine is the one where Larry and Balki go into business making pastries that, ultimately, explode in their faces due to an oversight in the recipe that requires a song to be sung while creating the confections).

The recording turned out fairly decent since the crowd was fairly well behaved (save for the loud drunkie who kept talking about how she’s going on vacation tomorrow… multiple times).

    does vampire weekend cover the bibby babka song? “when you’re rolling out the dough, just be sure to roll it slow. if you make the dough to quick, bibby babka make you sick. when you put the filling in, just be sure to wear a grin. when you smile at what you bake, bibby babkas turn out … nice.

    That was, by far, the best comment I’ve ever received on my site and I can only hope it was my brother who penned it.

    I have no idea how I stumbled across your website. Just wanted to say that your recording of this concert is ridiculously good. How did you get such a quality recording, and have you done it before?

    Thank you!
