Vampire Weekend Case Dismissed

A lawsuit against rock band Vampire Weekend, the band’s record label, and a photographer who allegedly provided an image for use on a Vampire Weekend album without a model’s permission has been dismissed.

Model Ann Kirsten Kennis asked a federal court in Los Angeles to dismiss the case, after she reached a settlement with Vampire Weekend and its label, XL Records. Kennis sued in 2010 after photographer Tod Brody licensed a Polaroid image of Kennis for use on the cover of the band’s Contra album.
