Yeasayer @ Terminal 5
Yeasayer ended their tour with Smith Westerns and Hush Hush back home at Terminal 5 on Saturday (6/18).
If the pictures below don't speak for themselves, Toby describes opener Hush Hush as very "entertaining. Filthy lyrics over heavy R&B beats from a skinny, tattooed redhead with a beard clearly off his face." (see below).
Yeasayer's 13 song set (with encore) included the three new songs they've been playing on tour, "Henrietta," "The Devil and the Deed," and "Demon Road." They debuted "The Devil and the Deed" on Conan last month. Check that video out below. The rest of Yeasayer's set was pretty hits-heavy with a slightly greater emphasis on the Odd Blood material.
You can catch Yeasayer at a much larger show in late July when they play PNC Bank Arts Center (7/28) and Nikon at Jones Beach (7/29) with The Flaming Lips and Weezer. Tickets are still on sale for both shows.
Smith Westerns @ Terminal 5
You can catch the Smith Westerns this Saturday at the House of Vans if you RSVP'd in time. According to a Van rep, "if you haven't received confirmation emails for Vans' Saturday night show, you should shortly."
