The Nose On 'Pizza, A Love Story' And The Age-Old Question, Is Vampire Weekend Still Cool?

May 10, 2019

Father of the Bride is Vampire Weekend's fourth studio album, their first in nearly six years, and their first for a major label. It has been called a "masterpiece" and a "multi-layered dissertation on the world's ills." It's also been called "mild" and "some of the worst ideas the band has ever put to tape." The real question is, though: Is Vampire Weekend still cool?

And then: Gorman Bechard's Pizza, A Love Story has its New Haven premiere in a few weeks at this year's NHdocs documentary film festival. The Nose talks Pizza, specifically, and pizza, more generally, from the pizza capital of the world.

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:

GUESTS:

  • Gorman Bechard - Novelist and filmmaker
  • Lucy Gellman - Editor of The Arts Paper and host of WNHH radio's Kitchen Sync
