Ezra Koenig: Lead singer of Vampire Weekend is Hilarious on Twitter

by Megan Goetz July 01, 2014

The band Vampire Weekend has been gaining popularity in the music scene for the last couple of years. Their upbeat and clever songs make them a lot of fun to listen to, and they finally are becoming somewhat of a household name. For those of you who think you don’t know them, the opening song in the movie Step Brothers is Vampire Weekends “A-Punk “. If you don’t know what Step Brothers is, you can call me Dragon and we’ll never be friends…unless you like doing karate in your garage.

Very few people know how hilarious and insightful Vampire Weekends lead singer Ezra Koenig (@arzE)  is on Twitter.

Here are some examples of why Ezra is awesome and you need to follow him ASAP.

1)   He’s kind of religious and also loves Mexican food. (who doesn’t)

5) He’s a real innovator.  One should NEVER text like an abuela.

Ezra Koenig is a Twitter powerhouse constantly tweeting gems of 150 characters or less to his more than 300,000  followers.  As if anyone needed a reason to love Vampire Weekend anymore, you could catch yourself wasting hours reading through Ezra’s tweets about life and being a dad.  If you haven’t listened to any of Vampire Weekends music yet, you seriously need to check them out. My favorite song by them is Giving up the Gun from the album Contra, but seriously most of their songs are awesome!

Also if you’re going to the Boston Calling Music Festival On  XXXXX they’ll be performing! Maybe you could catch a pic with the twitter genius himself in real life!
