I'm taking this one, thanks for playing though.
Anyway, the Yeahs are one of the best live acts I've ever seen. Their performance in 06 is one of the biggest reasons I got so into taking in live music. The drugs helped, but still. Karen's fucking mesmerizing and as the sky behind them dissolved from blue into red and pink and orange and gold it was breathtakingly beautiful. Their guitar licks sound like they're 100 miles wide when they come out of speakers that size. This thread is for getting your dick wet just thinking about sunset on April 19th.
Speaking of which though, I'm kinda annoyed they're still in the same slot they were in 06. Throw MBV and their tuneless racket on the outdoor or something, all they're going to do is make 9/10s of the crowd wonder how the fuck such unenjoyable clamor got second-billing. The Yeahs would convert 20,000 people into fans in that same slot.
Maps, an amazingly good capture of how the sonic effect plays out in their show.
Sealings, one of their best tracks, at Lolla. Video's meh, sound's pretty great.
