Hey, did you hear that YouTube is threatening to remove music videos from indie music labels? (because they won't sign a deal to give YouTube more money) That includes Vampire Weekend, which means all our favorites might disappear...
Yeah I did but I wasn’t able to make a post about it because I was too busy and sick! :(
Anyway for those who missed it:
Independent music labels such as XL, Domino and 4AD were in dispute with YouTube over the launch of a new subscription service. The labels refused to sign the agreement over highly unfavorable licensing terms.
If the labels don’t sign, Youtube would have the right to remove videos from each of the labels’ respective rosters which includes Vampire Weekend (XL), Arctic Monkeys (Domino) and The National (4AD), among others.
To counter the drama, Youtube released a statement (published on Rolling Stone) saying that they will only block content from the unsigned labels in certain countries.
According to a statement, Youtube’s ban will happen “in a matter of days”.
hi! sorry to bother you, but i've been searching on the internet forever for that vampire weekend covers/b-sides/rarities download pack, and all the links i've found have been dead :( do you have any idea where i can find a working download link? thank you so much :-)
Hmm I think I can help you with that and post download links for the stuff you need except for the b-sides (because I might get in trouble for that).
Just let me know and I’ll see if I can do something about it. :)
Omg you were there at the Red Hat Amphitheatre too? So was I! I must say THE SHOW WAS AMAZING !!
I didn’t personally attend the show (I was there in spirit!!) but since the Red Hat show was the last venue show for the MVOTC tour in the US, Vampire Weekend and me worked together to arrange a cute lil meet and greet and photo pit access for my friend who has been helping me on the blog! It was really cute because we kept it as a secret and and the band and their people were kind enough to help out with everything. She only found out about it two weeks before the show haha. My friend will be writing about her experience soon heh because it was cute and fun and special :’) #thankyouvampireweekend
I’m glad that you enjoyed the show!! And isn’t it rad that you were at the last US venue show of this era?
woah i didn't finish my last message i'm sorry! do you have a link to the summer nights video in which you made the gifs from? the only one i can find is one that started filming after ezra's bit. thank you!!!
Hello, unfortunately I can’t find the video where those GIFs that I made come from (it was posted by a Josh Groban fansite and I can’t find it anymore smh) but I found this other pretty decent video:
