* with Maximum Hedrum
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Have a ticket to see the sold-out Yeah Yeah Yeahs show this Monday at First Avenue in Minneapolis? I suggest showing up early to get a good spot, and while you're there early, you'll be treated to Maximum Hedrum (a nod to Max Headroom?) …
Based on hearing the electro-funk group's songs "PHD (in Sexuality)" back-to-back with "RoboSexual", then "Sunkissed Butterfly", and their last song, "Hugzzz for Everybody", they seem to be all about love. Including a brief song called "Praise Seitan" to animal lovers (Seitan is a vegetarian meat replacement). Of course, looking at the way they sing and dance, they seem to be fun-loving guys having a good time.
Maximum Hedrum were personally asked to do a number of dates with Yeah Yeah Yeahs. They're also playing Milwaukee's Summerfest and Mammoth Live in Kansas.
As for Yeah Yeah Yeahs, please refer to the setlist to see all the songs played. I'll try to fill in the rest. Karen O, has, as always, a bit of a stage presence. She underwent a few jackets and costumes changes throughout their set.
YYY fans are a dedicated bunch who showed up two hours before the doors open. They would rush to the front and sing along to all their songs, including new songs (like "Under The Earth", "Slave", "Despair", and "Sacrilege") from Mosquito, which came out April 16th on Interscope Records.
Encore was interesting, Har Mar Superstar came on stage to sing "Happy Birthday" to YYY's additional live guitarist David Pajo.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs are currently on tour in support of Mosquito, doing some random, mostly festival, tour dates this summer.
