Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a New York avant-punk band whose infectious griminess makes for quirky yet danceable tunes. Evolving over the past decade from garage rock-meets-art pop to edgy glam rock, Karen O has sealed the band’s overall sound with her idiosyncratic vocals that range from riot grrl growls to disarmingly desperate croons. Dancing around and pummeling their instruments, the trio has a damn good time making a racket, which in turn is incredibly fun to watch.
