The Vanity Set is an indie rock group of mostly second-generation Greek-Americans formed in New York City in 2000. Led by Jim Sclavunos, the drummer/percussionist with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, they describe their music as a blend of "low art, high sass and raw bluster."[1] Their music includes the sounds of rebetiko, "psycho-billy guitar, creepy keys, raucous tuba, mellifluous theremin."[2]
