"Surprised and touched that Karen O got so emotional during maps. "Can you believe how far this NY band has come?" She said while crying." - Kim Thai

Yeah yeah yeahs

"The key for me is to get really plastered," O says in a recent phone call with Atlantic City Weekly. "I don't have to get drunk when I play, but I admit it makes it easier. It helps me not think about anything onstage. I don't worry about what anyone thinks of me or the band. The best way to do it live is to just let it rip."

O is not the only reason that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a live force. Bespectacled powerhouse Brian Chase slams away at his drum kit as guitarist-keyboardist Nick Zinner delivers minimal but melodic lines. O commands attention as she stalks the stage like a famished predator.

"That's just the way we do things," O says. "That comes natural to us."

The band has morphed from a little-known New York City-based indie act to one of the most identifiable acts in Gotham. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who will perform Saturday (Sept. 26) at Borgata's Music Box, headlined Wednesday at Radio City Music Hall. But even though the group is playing one of the most storied venues in Manhattan, which signifies that you made it, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs haven't changed a bit. The trio remains gritty, tenacious and dramatic.

"I don't see why any band becomes something else," O says. "You should remain true to yourself, your band and your music."
[Atlantic City Weekly]

Yeah Yeah Yeahs headlined Radio City Music Hall in NYC last night (9/23). The four-song encore kicked off with two songs played acoustic with strings. One of those songs was "Maps". The video of that, with the full setlist, below...

ESG opened. Services open on 9/29, when the Yeah Yeah Yeahs play the much smaller Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Radio City:

I thought "Maps" was supposed to be about that nut from Liars. Must be kind of a bring-down to think that's your song and then find out it was for some big city.

I wouldn't call Brian Chase a "powerhouse". He is a decent drummer, but nothing special.

it was pretty amazing to be in radio city music hall with confetti streaming down like cherry blossom petals with the yyys on stage. nick's guitar could have been louder but--what the heck--it was a great show.

"i thought the performance was great but the crowd was weak. not their fault but a natural result of playing such a big venue and growing the fan base."

Wow - who designated you the resident, superior being? I suppose your choice of clothing and haircut make you immune to being part of the "weak" crowd?

Funny; if I were in a band, I'd actually be happy if my band made it big enough so that I could make a living at it and not play some cramped, low-ceilinged venue in Williamsburg with crappy sound. There are a whole lot worst things in life than being successful, making people happy via your music, and not having to have a day job anymore.

While great last night, I felt they were better at All Points West. Anybody else agree?

Posted by GW | September 24, 2009 9:47 AM

Hey Inquisigal,

I thought the show was insanely dope, but the crowd was a major downer. They just sort of stood there with blank stares, while people like myself were getting yelled at by security for "dancing too much" in the aisle. The crowd was definitely weak. I admit, I convinced 3 friends to go who never heard of the YYY's, so it's partly my fault. It's only natural when you play larger/more popular venues you're more likely to get a crowd curious about the hype compared to a 300 person venue with crappy sound where everyone is a die hard fan and goes ape shit.

Cheers,
E

Posted by MoneyBags | September 24, 2009 9:48 AM

GW, yes I agree. I thought they were on fire last night and one of the best times I've seen them.

What about more pics? Bring 'em on, so many costumes but was too far away to get any detail.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2009 9:54 AM

By 'weak' crowd, i wasn't referring to crowd's status but more to the fact that they weren't that into the music. For me, what has made a YYY show in the past has been an active, dancing crowd - which wasn't the case last night. It has nothing to do with the band becoming finnancially sucessful or not. And yes, i was immune to the weak crowd b/c i was actually dancing

Yeah the crowd was kinda beat, (like everyone else is saying, what did you expect) but i didn't let that stop me from going nuts (apologies to the person standing next to/behind me). YYYs sounded better than ever. It's upsetting to think that I probably won't see them again for a long time. I wish the setlist was longer.

do you seriously think anyone wearing that could also be a serious musician? karen o is an insult to female artists -- her actual value is in her ability to wear sequins and wail loudly without mussing her 'look'

muse, maybe, but not a musician.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2009 10:09 AM

Great performance - no-so-great sound. Karen's vocals were often lost, and her range seemed a bit limited in the live setting. The boomy bass tended to dominate. The audience was very lively, on their feet the entire show and very loud for the many-minutes-long wait for the encore. Karen is a trouper, never letting up for the entire set. I would have picked a few other songs I'd have like to hear, but the version of "Maps" was worth the entire evening alone.

Posted by drewo | September 24, 2009 10:13 AM

There was a chick in my row who looked like a taller version of Shakira, and had quite an amazing rack. That's all I got.

venue sucks - should be reserved for classical/intimate shows you can sit for. you can't dance in a row - and the venue staff is a major buzz kill

sad to see them kick out 2 girls in front of me for smoking weed.

also - how many giant inflatable volleyball dumbasses were on the left side of the orchestra? every time a ball got stuck it was because of their idiocay.

and then - how about the douchebag in the pit who put the ball down on the ground during Hysteric. I understand it was an acoustic jam and you didn't want to be bouncing the ball - but since everyone in the crowd was there to watch you watching the YYYs it makes it ok. douche.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2009 10:28 AM

nice spelling on "idiocay" - really drives home your point.

yeah and the guy in the pit was a douche. he already has teh best seat in the house - has to show everyone else in the crowd that not only do they get to play with the ball - they have to respect his VIP status and the volleyball impeding privileges that it carries.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2009 10:41 AM

I've seen a few of their shows and this was one of their biggest performance wise. They put out all the stops with all her costumes, giant eyeballs, confetti, giant Ys coming down from the ceiling and all that you normally don't get at the smaller shows. But yes, a huge part of the experience of a yyys show is the crowd getting into it as much as the band does, crowding up to the stage, dancing the entire time and leaving a hot sweat soaked mess. Unfortunately, that will never happen at RCMH or really any other venue with assigned seating.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2009 10:49 AM

the setlist left me feeling a bit unfulfilled- i'm a big fan of jamming, but they spent so much time 'zoning out' that they could've played 4 or 5 more songs- and the setlist was kind of slow too, not too many upbeat songs... but very cool show nonetheless

Dancing's overrated. I was tired from work, so was glad the person in front of me sat through the whole show. I thoroughly enjoyed myself rocking in my seat.

Seen them in various very different venues/settings, but I have to admit that the sound engineer at RCMH is on another level of pro; simply sounded incredible. He/she even made ESG sound the best I've ever heard. RCMH is one uptight place, but you can't fault them for having bad sound.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2009 11:20 AM

Karen's vocals did get buried in the mix, a bit of a surprise since this venue does usually get the mix dead-on and the acoustics are fantastic here. A show at RCMH is going to be very different than other shows in more intimate places were people can really let it rip. This is more of a showcase venue for this band. I knew this going in and really enjoyed the show for what it was.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2009 11:39 AM

rcmh is uptight for a reason: it's an iconic theater. you see how the bathrooms are preserved immactuately in original design? i don't fault the staff for being uptight, it's the type of venue you treat with respect. not a shithole where you toss your plastic cups and roaches on the floor. grow up people complaining....

also a show like this is all what you make of it. i had a great time and so did the people i was with. stop looking at what other people are doing, lame or not and just have fun for god's sake, whatever your way of doing that is...

and blonde cokeheady chick behind me chatting to her gay boyfriend, fuck you. i can hear still your nasal suburban accent bitch.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2009 12:04 PM

@ 12:04

two more ESG questions while we're here -

1) does she always perform dressed like she just got home from Wal-Mart too? Jeans and some crappy ass old jacket? What was that about...
2) did that last song have any words other than "this don't make sense" or whatever, over and over and over and over and over again? ridiculous.

Final ESG comments - waste of a good drummer in my opinion, and if you're the lead singer for an opening band don't leave the stage before your bandmates.

@Funderburgh

so true about the jeans. i turned to my friend during the set and asked "why is she wearing mom jeans?"

you know your jeans are bad when people from 100 yards away can tell.

the yeah yeah yeahs were great, but i was the only one within a 10 row radius who was dancing like a madwoman, which was kind of disappointing.

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2009 1:20 PM

"why is she wearing mom jeans?"

@Heather and Funderburgh - Because the lead singer of ESG IS a mom...of at least one other member of the band (the drummer I believe). Please do some research...ESG were influencing everything from post-punk like that which was coming from Factory Records (i.e., early New Order) to disco, early hip hop and techno back in the early 80s. They don't give a shit about hipster fashion...they're Spanish women from the Bronx...most of whom are in their 50s and 60s. Would you chastise someone like David Byrne because his jeans weren't cool?

Why the fuck are people so concerned about how the rest of the audience was acting? If they weren't dancing like you it doesn't mean they weren't enjoying themselves. Stop acting like everyone in the crowd has to act a certain way.

On top of that the venue is one that should be respected, so yes security is uptight and power tripping at times, but with good reason. I was in the first mezzanine and saw a good amount of people stealing seats, getting kicked out for smoking, throwing their drinks and stirrers over the side. Hipsters can be such trash.

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about the performance but I think YYY's and RCMH are just a bad match. The seating structure just made everything feel disconnected and killed the crowd's energy. Altho this was a great show by the band this was easily my least favorite show of the 5 I've been to.

That said the strings versions of Maps/Hysteric were great...

Posted by Anonymous | September 24, 2009 2:51 PM

I went last night and thought it was an amazing show. I was 4th row mezzanine and the sound was a slight issue just because it wasn't perfect, but it's an enclosed mezzanine after all.

Perhaps I thought it was amazing because I'm not a true hipster and wasn't wise enough to know who they were 6 years ago when playing cigarette dens in Williamsburg, but it's actually just quite possible that there are many d-bags in the comments here who think that because YYY's play Radio City, it means everyone who dared attend isn't worthy. Grow up, it was a unique experience and no one asked you to go so you could tout your greatness.

It's Radio City, it's more than just a symbol because it is still beautiful and in amazing shape. Any venue with seats won't be a rockin sweaty mess, but the mezzanine was literally shaking for half of the show. I've become a prissy adult lately so I appreciated the order and beauty of last night's show (despite also loving 2 hot n sweaty NiN shows last month), although I did not sit down for a moment but somehow didn't mind that some people were sitting down. How dare people not cater to inconsolable hipsters.

I'm obsessed with Skeletons.

I'm a huge fan of the YYYs and have been since seeing them with Oneida in a Williamsburg parking lot years ago. (I'm sure plenty of the other commenters were there, too.) Honestly, the show had all trappings, but somehow it sounded sloppy from my seats. Too much drum, not enough vocal. Perhaps, someone was asleep behind the board?

There are very few things in life as rewarding as learning to play a musical instrument, and there are even fewer things as beautiful as an electric guitar. However, learning to play the guitar takes a lot of patience and can be very frustrating at times. While it's very important that you stick to some sort of structure if you want to make good progress, it's just as important that you learn an easy song every now and then so you don't feel like you're going nowhere slowly.

I really wanted to hear Sealings too. Or Down Boy (or anything from the Is Is Ep, my favorite). Or Black Tongue...but I guess that's wishful thinking because they can't play every song they've put out, and they did play a bunch of old stuff. Still an amazing show though. Loved the Maps performance - really moving.

Posted by Anonymous | September 25, 2009 6:52 PM

Yeah, shut up to all the haters! I thought they worked hard to put out a pretty damn good show, especially considering as they had to work around the obvious limits of RCMH, it being a seated venue and all. And if you were complaining about the venue, well no one forced you to attend, and you would've known when you bought the ticket...right?? Chill out. I'm surprised at all the negative comments here - I thought people attended concerts because they were fans...Hm. Guess I'm wrong...

Posted by Anonymous | September 25, 2009 7:04 PM

what the hell is the name of the song that played during the YYY's stage set up... after ESG played.
It went something like "Murder in the backseat" over and over and had a really heavy groove.

I think it played like second or third....

6:59 are you referring to "Warm Leatherette" by The Normal?

Posted by Dan | September 27, 2009 11:31 AM

Hey E/Moneybags;

Thanks for your explanation of the "weak" crowd; it's a lot less offensive than I thought was intended. I agree It can be a bummer when you want to rock out and people around you seem to be un-enthused, or worst, you're asked not to by security.

The interesting thing is; as one gets older (I am dating myself here, as I was an indie rock writer for a national magazine at age 21-24, and am now 40), it becomes far less important what other people are doing/not doing at a show, and comes down to whether you get energized by the music & have fun.

Some people in my row were sitting, and some - like me- were standing and dancing. Someone even managed to smoke some very high-quality weed no problem. The energy of the band made it to my second mezzanine seat - perhaps being farther away from a primo seating, security doesn't patrol like the orchestra.

I do agree with others who have posted here - RCMH is a beautiful, classic venue, and you can't expect the same kind of show/experience that you might get in a club. I thought the set design, costume changes, and "razzle dazzle" were well done, trippy performance art, and something you couldn't obviously get in a club. I'm sure the Williamsburg Music Club show will offer the more intimate dance-sweat sitch that others crave....

Posted by Inquisigal | September 27, 2009 1:16 PM

11:31 no, it wasn't Warm Leatherette. it had just one line in the whole song that sounded exactly like "Murder in the backseat"
and the only reference beyond that I can make is that the voice sounded a lot like the first 10/12 seconds of Mims "Move if you Wanna":
