Ivy League Indies

The origin stories of bands can be really interesting — how did the members meet one another? What made them start playing music together?

Here are indie bands composed of members who attended or met as students at Ivy League universities:

1. Galaxie 500 and Luna: Dean Wareham graduated from Harvard

2. The Weepies: Deb Talan (Brown) and Steve Tannen (Stanford…technically not an Ivy League)

3. Hospitality: Amber Papini (Yale)

4. Dirty Projectors: David Longstreth (Yale)

Others:
Vampire Weekend (Columbia)
Weezer (Harvard)
Jonathan Coulton (Yale)
Bishop Allen (Harvard)
