Yeah Yeah Yeahs @ Maxwell’s, NJ | pics
Yeah Yeah Yeahs played the first of their mini-small-club-tour shows at Maxwell's in NJ last night (Feb 23, 2006). Blood on the Wall opened, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs took the stage about 10:30. They were finished with their 2 song encore around 11:30. To quote Karen O, they played "90% new material". I liked it, though general consensus among the many fellow-show-goers on the PATH train ride home leaned toward disappointment with the set list. Overall rating = thumbs up - left me wanting more.
Imaad Wasif didn't play on all songs. They played "Maps" acoustic style. Maxwell's stage is low to the ground. I wasn't really close to the stage so I didn't even know Karen O was wearing tights. Chris has another detailed review.
