Yeasayer

For the a second time this year, Ryan Muir took pictures of Yeasayer at Music Hall of Williamsburg. It was also the second night of their tour-ending, two-show, homecoming run at the Brooklyn venue this weekend.

"[The two shows at Music Hall] definitely have a homecoming feel. At this point we've played, not all over the world, but we've been back and forth to Europe several times and we played in Australia. We played all over the States. And the Williamsburg Music Hall is one of my favorite venues I've ever played in and, you know, Brooklyn is definitely our home. I have family there and I have friends there and it's been our kind of spiritual center. So yeah, it does have a homecoming feel. And it's kind of Christmas time thing so we're doing like a little Christmas party the day before the second show. I really don't know if it was appropriate to play two shows there, you know, but it seemed like maybe . . . And we'd already sold the one out. I don't know. It's good. I would've maybe rather had just one big bang show, but it's also we have a lot friends that we wanted to have open up and play with and stuff, so it's still good." [Yeasayer's Chris Keating to the Village Voice]
The friends they had opening were Chairlift and Fang Island (Friday) and Suckers and Gates of Heaven (Saturday). The pictures below are from Saturday...

I feel cheated by the lack of Gates Of Heaven photos. They blew me away - a religious experience.

@Anon5:36 - Not the least bit funny. A little respect for James Brown (R.I.P.) please.

I was there on Friday, great show.

Does anybody by chance have the setlist? There was a song towards the middle of the set that I haven't heard before, don't think it's on their album (not Tightrope....although that song is sick).

Thanks.

I have a feeling --

and it's that now, more than over,
we need to keep close guard
to our hearts,
and sock temptation square in the Jaw.

-t.f.t.

Amblin' Alp.....that's what I was looking for. Many thanks Sir James.

i'm assuming the mpp link is some sort of high-concept anti-leak fake, if not just a bad inside joke. still curious to see how it works. perhaps it will include some sort of hallucinogenic virus?
