When’s the last time you saw an outrageously dressed Karen O saunter out onto the stage, deep-throat her microphone, spit beer into the audience, and just generally make you fall in love with her? However long ago it was, the correct answer is too long.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs are clearly aware of this, and have just announced their summer tour, in support of the recently released It’s Blitz!. No openers, and only have a handful of dates including the Sasquatch, Bonnaroo, and All Points West festivals have been announced at this time, but look for opening bands and several dates to be announced soon enough.
