Yeah Yeah Yeahs @ Union Pool, 12/8/2012
Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Yeah Yeah Yeahs teamed with Higgins Waterproof Blackmagic (a new side project from Tunde of TV on the Radio) and a DJ set from Creep at Union Pool last night (12/8). Yes, the room was absolutely minuscule for a band of the YYY's size, but the occasion was to help raise money for victims of Hurricane Sandy, specifically via Waves 4 Water (follow that link to donate if you can). The YYYs were a quartet for the evening, adding collaborator David Pajo to the mix on that rainy Saturday.

More pics from Union Pool are below, including one of the setlist (which included the new song "Despair" presumably from their forthcoming LP).

Best fucking show.

Did the blondie from Creep get allowed back in the show? She got bounced for being too drunk and was making a big loud fuss at the door when I arrived.

Karen O is so fucking ugly

i've never listened to a YYYs record (only heard the famous singles) but this is pretty cool they would just play union pool like this. wish more bigger bands played small venues. you always here stories of the greatful dead playing club gigs every week in san fran back in the day.

given the small venue, i suspect their mediocrity was even more evident, yes? did karen do her swallow the mic trick again? that's always a good one.

1. Karen is far from ugly. However, I'm not sure what the hell is going on with that mess o' blonde-ish hair on here head. Fuck, Ms. O. Get back to your basics and look all smokin' next time.

2. Pajo does indeed need to be spending more time making his own records and not playing fifth fiddle to some band who decides to play once in a while when the guitarist isn't shopping for healthy foods on the LES.

3. At the end of the day, it doesn't even matter. As we've discussed, the very fact that G. Bear wasn't nominated for a Grammy ... fuck it all.

You will never get a grammy.

9:21 nah, she is pretty damn close to ugly

Great show, great cause, great band. How about a new record? For those posting meh, yawn, they suck etc, I'm sure Animal Collective will come to town for another sausage fest!

For those with the negative comments..my early Christmas wish is for u to die a horrible death via the subway train in NYC

Hey, assholes (signaling out the 97% dude bros who apparently read this blog now): how about the next time a woman in a band is pictured/ featured on here, not just point out how hot; gross; ugly; fillable-with-cum she is?

prefer her with dark hair

I think the problem with 7:34's comment is that, unlike a lot of the pervy comments on BV, he sounds creepily serious. If you're not a complete lowlife, probably gonna wind up raping someone perv, congrats on the post and freaking everyone out! If you are that lowlife, go die or something.

Karen O looks like she drinks a lot of coffee, has too many cats, and smells like Pall Malls.
