Yeah Yeah Yeahs playing a private show @ Mercury Lounge (and here are some videos from last night)
Nick Zinner @ Monster Island - Sept 22, 2010 (by Jenn Pelly)
As NME reports:
Following the finale of 'Y Control' [at Monster Island Basement last night], the [Yeah Yeah Yeahs] returned with a rare run through 'Modern Romance'. The singer also added to the celebratory feel of the evening by showering the front row with confetti, before saluting the crowd by declaring: "It's fucked up how sweet you guys are!"
This show follows another secret performance at Manhattan's Don Hills venue last week - Yeah Yeah Yeahs are due to continue their low-key tour of their hometown's smallest venues with a strongly rumoured show for friends and family, believed to be taking place at the Mercury Lounge on Friday (September 24).
As the article implies, it doesn't seem like they'll make any tickets available to the public for the Manhattan show. Some videos of last night's show, shot by Jenn Pelly (who was also at Pavement earlier in the night), below...
