    Many famous musicians worked their way through the university system before making it to the top of the music industry, but few of them leave behind much evidence. It's common knowledge that Vampire Weekend met each other under the umbrella of Columbia, and it's pretty well known that Ezra Koenig was into the dark arts—have you ever met a light undergrad writing major?

    What's less known is Koenig's published work. One of Koenig's contributions to Columbia's literary magazine, Quarto, recently surfaced in it's entirety, including Koenig's bio for the publication:



    Obviously Ezra Koenig wasn't as confused about himself as the stereotypical tortured college undergrad. His story is classic, contemplative, and sentimental. "Off the Grid" was published in Quarto in 2006. Maybe it's the New England in both of them, but it wafts of John Updike: parallel experiences becoming perpendicular, and maybe it means nothing at all, and maybe it means everything.

    It's a page and half, and it's all here:
