faux wayfarers+faux vampires+weekends=free tacos

by pieces of moments

Via Pitchfork:

An ad posted on Craigslist recently is apparently calling for musicians to create a Vampire Weekend cover band. They offer free tacos as an incentive.

Fake Wayfarers? Check.

Necessarily evil prep? Check.

Sign me up? Wait…

Uh…did you say A-Punk or Punked?

Either way, it’s pretty hilariously awesome.

{original ad here, excerpt below}

“So we need one of each of these:


Ezra Koenig (lead vocals, guitar, piano, hand drum)
Rostam Batmanglij (organ, chamberlain, piano, harpsichord, guitar, vocal harmonies, drum and synth program, shaker)
Chris Tomson (drums, guitar)
Chris Baio (bass guitar)

You must look vaguely like a member of the band and be able to play an instrument that corresponds to that band member. And it’s a necessary evil but you must have a flair for the preppy dress of the original bandmembers.

This is real. Once the band is formed and you are all practiced up, you will have a residency the first thursday of every month at a popular Williamsburg-based bar/music venue.

Tacos will be provided.”
