YYYs and TV on the Radio - free show in Boston WE WANTED SO BADLY TO SEE THIS.
last night, while we were checking out the Axis scene for The Format, a bajillion more people were checking out the free concert of TV on the Radio and Yeah Yeah Yeahs at Boston City Hall Plaza. sigh.
"The sun had started to set, the heat of the day has lost its grip on the city, and thousands – 10, 12, 15 thousand — were filing peacefully into City Hall Plaza long before the headlining Yeah Yeah Yeahs were due to take the stage. All the makings of a perfect rock and roll evening were in place as Brooklyn’s TV on the Radio filled downtown with an eclectic mix of organic post-punk guitars and almost trance-y rhythms devoid of the electronic embellishments that are such of big part of the alterna-indie band’s studio sound....Dressed like some kind of X Woman superhero in red and gold leather short shorts with a matching top and moon boots, [Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O] quite literally took over the stage as Chase and Zinner lost no time kicking into the swinging, bass-less anthem 'Gold Lion.'"
here's the full article.
rbally was there (check back for his comments, i'd think). i wish we could have been there. but our alternative rocked pretty hard too.
TV on the Radio is coming to the Paradise this October..
