The members of Vampire Weekend seem to be putting their Ivy League experience to a more conventional use, stepping in as guest editors on the September 12th editions of the Philadelphia, New York, and Boston free newspapers Metro.

A press release from the band stated that the four members are "working together with the papers' permanent editors, [to] choose subject matter to be covered by the publications while curating a special section devoted to the best foods of New York City."

In case you can't get your hands on a copy, Vampire Weekend's stellar third full-length LP Modern Vampires of the City is available now courtesy of XL.
