Show Me Your Tones. Yeah Yeah Yeahs at Roseland, NYC. May 2, 2006. photos by Kenyon.

Many will wonder if the Yeah Yeah Yeahs can still be exciting live with a second album that's on the softer side. This performance showed they can still be exciting and still a lot of fun as well. Although there were stupid drunk girls saying stupid things ("Take off your wig, Nick!" and "does anyone have a cigarette!?") and those same girls shoving their way up to the front after the rest of us had been standing there since 7:30, there were still enough moments where we could semi-dance and raise our arms while Karen O smiled and jumped up and down like a giddy teenager.

included in set: Gold Lion, Tick, Pin, Black Tongue, Y Control, Maps (acoustic), Phenomena, Way Out.

Dirtbombs and Black Lips (above) were perfect as openers. The crowd was pleased with the garage punk and psychedelic garage rock. Pleased enough for a half-assed mosh pit to form.
