Yeasayer

“[Friday] night the Guggenheim hosted another event for their It Came From Brooklyn series, which brings talented Brooklynites all the way to the Upper East Side. The evening was hosted by Max Silvestri, and featured a (bit too maudlin) reading from Rachel Sherman, and live sets from Tanlines and Yeasayer. A 3-D light show was also advertised, but as the evening went on we were told the glasses were merely for “enhancement” purposes.

The $45 ticket price is a bit high, but those in attendance were also able to check out the Kandinsky retrospective while there… just so long as they didn’t have their 3-D enhancement glasses on. The guards were unusually strict about this.

There was a bar set up, with a ticket system in place (one wine was 3 tickets, aka $6); and the museum served as a gorgeous venue, with plenty of great sightlines. Frank Lloyd Wright, however, didn’t design it to be acoustically perfect for future indie bands — leaving Yeasayer sounding more like Mehsayer (sorry). That said, we sort of prefer these museum rock shows over the status quo — so we hope there are many more to come!” [Gothamist]

Yeasayer‘s new and free single is out now. More pictures from the Guggenheim below…
