Yeah Yeah Yeahs Turn 10 At Secret Project Robot

The between Metropolitan and N. 3rd, in fact, at the small, and according to various reports and tweets, steamy/sweaty Secret Project Robot storefront on Kent Ave., close to Glasslands and the Waterfront and many other sites of summer live-show excellence. This was a semi-secret show in celebration of 10 years of NYC’s own world-beating art star trio — with a setlist appropriately focused on their very early material, Fever To Tell and its preceding EPs — at a Todd P production that sold out its run of very limited $20 tickets within the hour they were officially on sale (6PM) at the venue the night before the show. I was near, but not there, last night, heeding the band’s call to steer clear of the site if not in possession of those fancy pieces of paper pictured above (photo via BV), because reportedly none would be available at the door, and that street isn’t big enough to accommodate a large crowd of rubberneckers, let alone the room itself. Plus at the very least, there would be YouTube, which there was, and is, and it is below:


All clips via jennpelly. Looks like fun. Word is they’re doing it again, tomorrow night at Mercury Lounge, which is something you probably already know and have a ticket for if you are one of the invited “friends and family.” And if not, here’s last night’s to make it difficult once again not to just show up at the venue and try your luck despite express requests not to:
