Harvard macroeconomist Greg Mankiw has given his endorsement to Vampire Weekend, a band comprised of recent Columbia graduates, including drummer Chris Tomson, who was WKCR Jazz Director for a while. On the Columbia years, see this Columbia College Today article.
Christian Lander, the author of Stuff White People Like, recently described them as the whitest band around: "They're pushing it to levels unseen," he said.
