Which Williams-related video has the most views on Youtube? It’s not even close: this Vampire Weekend performance in Greylock Dining Hall back in February of 2008, with 252,000 and counting:

For some reason, there are far fewer views of Vampire Weekend’s performance of its biggest hit, A-Punk, during the same concert. Kudos to the students who booked Vampire Weekend just before they exploded nationally. [Is there an updated link to Ben’s photos of the show anywhere?]

Does anyone have memories of concerts they saw in unlikely venues at Williams prior to a band hitting it big? Dave Matthews Band performed my frosh year (January 1994) in Mission dining hall. Within another year, they would have been unbookable anywhere at Williams.
