Yeah Yeah Yeahs @ Barclays Center – 9/19/13
Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Like fellow NYC indie rock bands The National have done and Vampire Weekend will do tonight (9/20), Yeah Yeah Yeahs made the jump to arenas last night (9/19), taking on their city’s newest one, Barclays Center. They kicked off their set with two songs from this year’s Mosquito (“Sacrilege” and “Under the Earth”), accompanied by the Broadway Inspirational Voices Choir. They then proceeded to dive into the rest of their catalog, mixing it up pretty well between all four full lengths (and including “Art Star” from their first EP), and delivered a characteristically lively show with lots of confetti. Pictures and the setlist from the show are in this post (Har Mar Superstar opened, but unfortunately we missed him). Lower level was pretty full except towards the back. Floor was packed. I’d guess there were probably 8,000-10,000 there. Not bad considering the new album has been a bit of a dud and they just played another huge show in Brooklyn back in May.
