Dubbs and I saw the Yeah Yeah Yeahs at Roseland Ballroom last night. Our timing was perfect, arriving in just enough time to have a wee and then weasel our way through the throngs. The show was top notch. Karen O is a mesmerizing spectacle and the stripped down nature of the music means nothing is lost when all the studio tricks fall away. Dubbs and I both agreed that the only think that would've made it all more worthwhile was a little movement from the audience. Our NY peers are typically too cool for school so physical movement was, sadly, limited to head bobbing and navel-gazing.
Chris gets in this afternoon. The excitement? Bloody palpable.
