YYYs @ GoogaMooga 2013
GoogaMooga

We've already posted photos from the first two bands (The Darkness and The Flaming Lips) to play the Great GoogaMooga kickoff concert on Friday (5/17). Here are a set from headliners Yeah Yeah Yeahs who were the only band to actually get to play after sunset. A few shots of Chairlift, who played two different DJ sets that day and who will perform in the same location of the park this summer, are also in this post.

Did you go on Friday? How was your GoogaMooga experience?

Right after playing GoogaMooga, YYYs hopped down to Gulf Shores, Alabama to play the 2013 Hangout Fest on Sunday (5/19).

"About halfway through the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Hangout Music Festival set, frontwoman Karen O took a moment to make a special announcement before playing the band's 2004 breakout single "Maps." "This is dedicated to Stevie Wonder," she called out to the thousands of fans who showed up to catch the Yeah's set. The iconic R&B star was slated to follow the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on the Hangout Stage as the weekend's headliner." [MTV]

Despite not having the most successful event either this year (rain) or last year (lines), a Channel 12 report claims GoogaMooga will be back in 2014. Meanwhile, BV Chicago reports that GoogaMooga might be coming to Chicago in August.

More Yeah Yeah Yeahs photos are below.

Somebody chimed in on another post earlier...the Yeah Yeah Yeahs were great. I went more for the Flaming Lips, but loved the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Foodies are THE most pretentious worthless assholes I have ever seen. They are the new republicans and unfortunately the foodies personify what NYC has morphed into. Glad to see this festival was a fucking disaster.

@6:33 I wish I had gone to the show if only to beat the shit out of that goofy asshole on the left.

To have an authentic festival experience you must have authentic festival clothing.

YYY's blew away The Dopey Lips. They got the order in which they played correct.

I would have easily paid at least $60 to not attend this cunt fest.

It's amazing that BV Chicago has the inside scoop! I guess the Googa/superfly corporation bought enough ad units to continue this site's blind cooperation of Brooklyn commodification.

if you went Friday and did not have epic fun you have no one but yourself to blame.

oh, and anyone else notice how much Karen looks like a younger and slightly thinner Courtney Love?

I've listened to the new YYY album about five times and cannot recall what a single song sounds like.

wow an evening of bands on stage wearing crazy outfits and playing mediocre music.

654 One day was cancelled. It was packed the other two. What disaster? Not sure what your average foodie is like but they can't be any worse than your average Williamsburg so called hipster.

The crowd was non-existent for The Darkness, which was noted by the lead singer. The growing crowd appeared more interested in eating and drinking than watching The Flaming Lips, which was noted by Wayne Coyne. I felt like both bands got a bit short-changed with the early scheduling. But, the crowd for the YYYs was absolutely enormous.

As much as I hate myself for saying this - and this is especially so after seeing some of these pics, I actually had a real good time.

Please, enlighten us as to what the "old" NYC was like and how much better it was. Really.

NYC was the best in 1920's. Jazz, flappers, good economy and art deco. That's obviously the NYC 11:01 was referring to. Everything since has sucked.
