DOWNLOAD: Yeasayer - 2080 (MP3)
Hello Everyone.Last night's show at Bowery Ballroom (Feb 13, 2008) confirmed what I already thought: I don't like MGMT, but Yeasayer are amazing/awesome/insert-one-word-that-means-I-think-they-are-really-great-live-here. The synced-up, psychedelic visuals Yeasayer were projecting on to the wall behind them were done really well too. Overall you could tell the band had just been playing every night for a month. They were better/tighter than ever, there was a lot to look at, and Bowery Ballroom was a great fit for their big sound.
YEASAYER's first US tour w/ MGMT is finally winding down with one last sold out show in NYC and another sold out show in Philly. Thanks for all the support across the land and expect to see Yeasayer possibly in your area in April/May when they head out w/ Man Man. Promises to be a ball of thunder!
We do have another exciting announcement. YEASAYER will be performing on CONAN O'BRIEN this Friday,
MarchFebruary 15th! So make sure you are tuned in at around 1am for the one song set!
Again, thank you so much for the support and love. It fuels our mission.

Violens (playing their 7th-ever live show....as "Violens" anyway) were good too - especially a few of the songs. MGMT & Yeasayer do it again at Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight (except tonight Yeasayer play last). Man Man and Yeasayer dates, and a fan made video for "2080" (the song they'll be playing on Conan), below...

Yeasayer @ Mercury Lounge, NYC - Dec 15, 2007 (Pavla Kopecna)
Yeasayer & MGMT played the smaller stage at Black Cat in DC last night (Jan 16, 2008), but demand was so high for the show that people were actually writing the venue to ask for the show to be moved to the bigger stage. The venue replied...
Thanks for writing and letting us know what’s happening over there at BYT in regards to the Yeasayer/MGMT show. We understand that this show, selling out the Backstage in advance as it did, would seem like a perfect opportunity for a last minute move to the Mainstage. In this case, we encouraged the bands to move this show upstairs. However, it was Yeasayer’s and MGMT’s decision to stay on the Backstage. In the end, we support their decision and believe it will be a great night.Both NYC shows are now also sold out - even the Bowery Ballroom one they just added. Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings play a sold out show at the Black Cat tonight. Yeasayer and MGMT were both just on MTV news.
For those who did not get tickets, remember that advance tickets are available for Backstage shows through Ticketmaster and here at the Black Cat’s own box office.

That's No Surrender and Santogold up there on the cover of the new FADER. The BBC also put Santogold on a list of "some of the hottest new music talent" for 2008. You can read the whole list, and more, below...
Yeasayer @ the 2007 Crown Point Festival, NYC (CRED)
The show that brings Team Robespierre, High Places AND Yeasyer to the Mercury Lounge stage in one night is this Saturday (Dec 15). I hope you weren't waiting to get tickets because it is now sold out.
I still haven't seen MGMT. That could change on February 14th though. That's when they join Yeasayer for a home-town tour stop at The Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Tickets for that show go on sale today at noon.

MGMT are a Bowie-esque "electro pop duo" from Brooklyn who happen to be signed to Columbia Records. They also happen to be going on tour with (the Bowie-loving) Of Montreal - that includes the show at Roseland Ballroon in NYC on October 13th They are:
Andrew Vanwyngarden and Ben Goldwasser, two psychic pilgrims whose paths first intersected in the green pastures of Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, circa 2002.I should see them live before making any judgement because I can listen to the above MP3 over and over again, but most of the other songs streaming on their MySpace seem a little too unoriginal, a little too.....Bowie? I also haven't heard the whole new album (out late 2007 or early 2008).
Their MySpace page is really annoying too. I'd still see them live I guess (at least once) - like at Cake Shop in NYC tonight (Sept 12). All tour dates below....
