Yeah Yeah Yeahs at Good Records

Yeah Yeah Yeahs at Good RecordsI had the chance to squeeze into the Yeah Yeah Yeahs instore performance at Good Records yesterday. When I arrived, I was unprepared for such a crowd. The place was bursting at the seams with what felt like a million kids weilding camera phones. It was the first time I had been to Good Records to find it this sweaty and packed. It felt like a sauna, but it was just the 300 or so people all breating heavy while jammed in the isles between the cd racks. Everyone waited as patiently as they could in the moments before the Yeah Yeah Yeahs would step on stage despite the uncomfortable body heat and humidity. When the band made it on stage, we were all treated to a nice intimate acoustic set of about four songs from their latest album. It was a nice little teaser to their show that night at the Gypsy Tea Room. I didn’t get a chance to go to that performance, but I thought I’d post these few shots of the packed house at Good Records.

Good Records has a ton of great acts popping in to perform a small set. Check out their upcoming instore calendar for who’s performing next.
