The past few nights Yeah Yeah Yeahs played a trio of shows (one at Maxwell's, two at Bowery Ballroom) and I got tickets to the Saturday night show at Bowery. Historically I've not been a huge fan of the band but still really liked Fever To Tell and everything I saw on TV of their live performances made me want to see the band in person myself. Long story short: I'm so glad I got those tickets, the show on Saturday night was superb. From what I could tell, the set was made up of mostly (almost all) new songs. Again, I'm not the best person to tell you what was played when (setlist anyone?) but the new songs sounded marvelous. I can't wait for the new record.
Below you'll find a link to a (crap) video clip I took with my digital camera. It's a new song and I love it and I'm sorry the sound isn't better (and the camera shakes) but my camera sure as heck wasn't made to capture live music in the dark. Anyway, anyone know the name of this song? Also below you can find some places where you can read what others thought about the show and maybe check out some still pictures that are actually worth looking at.
