Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Japanese Breakfast & The Linda Lindas @ Forest Hills Stadium (pics, videos, setlists)
Just one day after releasing their great new album Cool It Down, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs played their first hometown NYC show since Governors Ball 2018 (and first headlining show since their comeback, Fever to Tell-heavy Kings Theatre show in 2017) at Forest Hills Stadium on Saturday (10/1). They played six of the eight songs off Cool It Down, along with plenty of other classics like "Date With the Night," "Y Control," "Black Tongue," "Honeybear," "Cheated Hearts," "Down Boy," "Zero," "Gold Lion," "Heads Will Roll," "Maps," and more, and it all sounded great and meshed together perfectly.
It was also a great bill all around, with openers Japanese Breakfast and The Linda Lindas (the latter of whom covered The Go-Go's' "Tonite" and their namesake song "Linda Linda" by The Blue Hearts). All the bands expressed admiration for each other, and at one point Karen O said, "If I saw this show I’d be fucking stoked!!!"
