Ivy Indies

While the Ivy League has produced its fair share of rockstars (including John Legend (Penn), Alicia Keys (Columbia), and Paul Simon (also Columbia)), today's playlist deals with a more recent crop of ivy league artists who left the ivory tower in search of gold records. At the top of the class is blog-darling, Afro-pop rockers Vampire Weekend (Columbia '06 and '07); followed by synth pop duo Chester French (Harvard '07) who signed to Pharrel's label after graduation; plus Bishop Allen (Harvard '98 and '99), MGMT (Wesleyan '05 --- the Ivy League is just a sports league anyways, people), and rounding out the list for good measure, Yale's own Harlem Shakes ('05 and '06).


Tom Morello (Rage/Audioslave) and Rivers Cuomo (Weezer) are both Harvardians too.

and that's awesome about MGMT-- i never knew they were from the northeast.
