Kid Cudi, Vampire Weekend and Best Coast Live

We all know that music is fragmented these days—a different venue, CD, subculture, genre for every type of person in the world. And we definitely know that that those different musical worlds don't often collide with each other either. That really sucks, too, because when they do, like they did last night for the Converse: Three Artists, One Song show, the friction is pretty real and pretty beautiful. Kid Cudi, Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast, and Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend don't seem to have much in common, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Their performance of the song last night at Music Hall of Williamsburg highlighted that while the whole isn't necessarily better than the parts, it might be just as good. Plus it's kinda awesome to see all three of them on stage at once.
