Yeah Yeah Yeahs Storm Austin

Published October 6, 2009 by Graham


The Yeah Yeah Yeahs headlined the Austin City Limits festival on Friday night, and the New York Times had this to say, in a story entitled “Austin City Limits: The Yeah Yeah Yeahs Deliver.”

…the Yeah Yeah Yeahs delivered a stupendous set, even stronger and more focused than the very good show they played in Brooklyn earlier this week. Karen O, the band’s front woman, approaches every stage as a frontier to be conquered, and here she was both impish and imperious. In the guitarist Nick Zinner and the drummer Brian Chase, she has something much more than support: their output, which came in surges, was often enveloping.

Sounds about right. Photos via flickr users danfun and aclfestival.
