Boston - The Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Tonight - what a great time for free live music in Boston - and probably one of the last good shows this summer...

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs
&
TV on the Radio
play out live tonight in City Hall Plaza.

The YYYs, of course, are touring behind their ultra-cool 2006 "Show Your Bones" album. It's been touted near and wide (it made my top twenty albums of the last two years list).

And How could it not be great with Karen O's sultry voice?
The band should be absolutely smokin' hot having practiced for their live appearance earlier this week on the Conan O'Brien show.


Special Guests of the YYYs are NYC's TV on The Radio, darlings of the metropolitian New York and Philadelphia indie scenes. The band (which has supported a rolling membership over recent years and are also supporting a new album release with "Return to Cookie Mountain."

The core members are Tunde Adebimpe (vocals/loops), Kyp Malone (vocals/guitars/loops) and David Andrew Sitek (music/guitars/keys/loops) Jaleel Bunton (drums) & Gerard Smith (bass).

This is a wicked fun summer song!
I love the excitement level (and the clapping) Whooo!

Sooner or later you make your mind up on B&S.
This is one of the songs that made me a fan.
Great stuff.

This track (coming to you from Southern Califronia) is so hot!
It's been playing in my vehicle for weeks.
It will rattle your brain:
"Whoa. Whoa, whoa. Yeah."
(Thanks to DJ Jax for hooking me up.)
...
The most underrated band playing clubs in England right now.
I am a member of their American fan group.
