Yeah Yeah Yeahs Blitz Hits Letterman

Karen, Brian, Nick, and Pajo took It’s Blitz lynchpin “Zero” to the Ed Sullivan Theatre last night for Phase Three of YYYs’ four-part NYC takeover this week (set your TiVOs for Fallon tonight). Ms. O didn’t spin, jump, or twirl for the song like at their triumphant “secret show” tour tuneup at Santos Sunday night, but she did helpfully indicate which part of her outfit was leather and otherwise morphed her pat poses from sorta tame to completely compelling. Rock. Star. They looked great and sounded better, with an honorary A+ to Letterman’s sound team. Shaffer’s review: “Karen O is like, rad, man.” Dave says not to listen to him, but you can if you want to. Just include the other dudes on stage.

It’s Blitz is out now on Interscope.
