‘Secret’ Yeah Yeah Yeahsshow in Sydney?

Karen O is bringing her “psycho-opera” Stop the Virgens to Vivid LIVE for five nights with a cast that includes her Yeah Yeah Yeahs bandmates Nick Zinner and Brian Chase, plus Money Mark, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler from The Greenhornes and The Raconteurs), Sam Spiegel (aka Squeak E. Clean from N.A.S.A.) and Jason Grisell (Bubbles).

The shows run at the Opera House starts on Wednesday 30th May, but the night before that The Flinders in Surry Hills will host a one-off improvised experimental jazz collaboration featuring Yeah Yeah Yeahs drummer Brian Chase, local musicians Sophia Brous and Shags Chamberlain and some mysterious “surprise guests”.

The show, which is being advertised on Facebook as Yeah Yeah Yeahs & Australian friends, will also feature your favourite nang-huffing, M83-baiting miscreants Teenage Mothers and Jack Mannix from Circle Pit.

Tickets are $10 on the door.

i reckon this is a pretty far fetched grab at a story.

Yeah man, no one would want to hear about a potential secret gig from a well loved band.

Not gonna lie, I have never heard anyone mention these dudes on FL ever, I thought they were my underground love :(

i'm assuming YYYs have a decent following on this forum? they've produced 3 of the best albums of the past decade, at least 3 of my personal favourites. was overseas when they last toured so yet to see them live so something like this would be awesome.

i had no idea the entire band was part of this opera alongside half of another one of my favourite bands in the Raconteurs. thinking this show would've been worth the entry fee just to see all that talent on stage together!

hoping to attend this, though i'm a tad concern that it may reach max capacity very quickly

LOL. Yes Lak, you're the only person on FL that knows the Yeah Yeah Yeahs

YYY are surely one of the biggest indie darlings of the 2000s. Fever to Tell and Show Your Bones were both massive indie hits.

I'm going to attempt to line up for this after work.

My hopes are not high.

YYYs are one of my favourites, loved since I first heard the track Pin, rushed out to buy Fever To Tell
Karen has always reminded me of a young Siouxsie, wish they would do a full tour.

I assumed Yeah Yeah Yeah's were quite a large band? One of the biggest female lead bands around was my assumption

I like how Teenage Mothers and the guy from Circle Pit are supporting to show our international guests the best we have to offer.

crob

crob said on the 24th May, 2012

my thought were Circle Pit are on the bill because the yeah yeah yeah's are fans of them...

How unfortunate for the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

That seems to say that there will only be one guest joining the band, a guitarist

They are fine recorded, I enjoy their stuff. They are god awful live.

Still says "suprise guests" but it has been updated and changed a bunch of times.

It also now adds "CHARLES BUDDY DAABOUL is a multi-instrumentalist and member of No Art whose brilliant song writing and Sonic Youth esq guitar tones are proving him to be one of Sydney's most exciting new artists." and says " It's not clear whether Circle Pit are playing as a band....or if it's a Jack Mannix solo set. But Jack will let us know really soon."

My memory is failing me but didn't one of you FL cats have a funny story about Brian Chase being a dickhead?

Would happily catch a Melbourne gig, but they are not at the level for me to justify a trip to Sydney

Tour Brisbane, BC. I promise not to throw too many XXXX schooners at you.

jordanwatton

jordanwatton said on the 28th May, 2012

any word here on the yyy front? if this is not legit then its been a great marketing campaign by brian. the indie kids are gonna be puzzled expecting karen and nick and receiving an "improvised experimental jazz collaboration" instead.

shazie

shazie said on the 28th May, 2012

idk about you, but improvised experimental jazz collaboration all the way!

Not really. The flyer doesn't once mention Karen and Nick. The indie kids are going because they think they're going to a super secret show with the Sydney elite.

berlinchair101

berlinchair101 said on the 28th May, 2012

No, I'm going because I might see a band I like, or at least a cool night of music.

crob

crob said on the 28th May, 2012

I'll walk by after work... if there is a massive line then I'm not going to bother n head around the corner to get loose on the free booze at the Bachelorette of the Year 2012 Awards... either way it should be a good night, hopefully the rain will scare some of these kids away

crob

crob said on the 29th May, 2012

Walk past 30 Min ago n there was no line... So I'm checking out the Bachelorette of the Year thing... Free rekorderlig... Will head back closer to 8 try my luck... For seeing this detour might have been a bad idear...

shazie

shazie said on the 29th May, 2012

Wait, free rekorderlig? Why am I doing a programming assignment when I could be getting free booze.


Oh and yeah the potential of YYY's thing close by might be kinda cool maybe.

crob

crob said on the 29th May, 2012

I rock up at 810 n got straight in.... @shazie The trick to getting free booze is to be on every online magazine facebook/email list... Had a fare few ciders earlier... Tonights is becoming a rad night

Jose Cuervo

Jose Cuervo said on the 30th May, 2012

So BC, how was your show last night?

tyler07

tyler07 said on the 30th May, 2012
