Which Band Calls Vassar The Coolest College On The Planet?

[Prefix]
In an interview published today for Prefix Magazine, Dom calls Vassar "the coolest fucking college on the planet." Here is what the group says about their gig here last May:

Q: How'd that collaboration with Cults come about?

A: We got booked for a show at Vassar College--which, by the way, is the coolest fucking college on the planet--and we went there not knowing what the hell was going on. We'd just played basement shows and parties and stuff [at that point]. When we got there, we saw all these big buzzbands were playing--Screaming Females, Twin Sister, Cults, Washed Out. [Cults] and Twin Sister seemed to be the chillest out of everybody. Everybody else was either too chillwave or something, they got a hipster boner up their ass. I just knew right away that they were down, because we went to their room and they introduced me to a game that they like to play called "Avoid the Knife." Which consists of, pretty much, you stand on the opposite end of the table from somebody and you throw a knife at them, and you have to avoid it, and you just do that back and forth. So I was like, these kids know how to party, these kids are really cool, I like them. After that we just starting hanging out more often, they had us by their spot. We had a friendship.
