Congrats to Epiphone's Vampire Weekend
who are now booked for the 2013 Ottawa Folk Festival this fall. The festival will include Neil Young & Crazy Horse, The Wailers, and the Avett Brothers along with The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Shannon Rose and the Thorns, and David Lindley.
VW's new album, Modern Vampires of the City
(which went #1 earlier this month), got the attention of NPR

" wrote NPR's Ken Tucker. Sounds right by us.
See them on tour this summer.
