Yeasayer/Warpaint @ Natural History Museum, Los Angeles 2/5/10

By admin / February 8, 2010

L.A.’s Natural History Museum invited Yeasayer to headline their most recent First Fridays event, because Yeasayer love playing museums. Like that Guggenheim show, the band was paired with some ascendant local talent — in October it was Brooklyn’s Tanlines, Friday night saw the slot filled by the previously loved ladies (and man) of Warpaint. Photographer Andrew Youssef reports the show was “extremely sold-out,” which sounds about right. The Odd Blood support tour hits New York tonight for a pair of equally sold-out sets, and will feature opening sets from Brooklyn duos Sleigh Bells (in the US) and Javelin (in Europe). Last week we heard XXXChange’s remix of “O.N.E.”; grab that, have a pass at Andrew’s photos and Yeasayer’s complete list of upcoming tour dates:
