Yeah Yeah Yeahs

Tell Me What Rockets to Swallow (Interscope)

Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs would be nothing without a stage. The manic frontwoman dashes left to right as though she were being chased by wolves, all the while screaming like a banshee. Performance art doubling as a concert, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' showing at S.F.'s Fillmore, captured by Lance Bangs, is the next best thing to feeling Karen O's spittle drip down your back. A full 16-song set, behind-the-scenes footage, the MTV Video Awards performance of "Maps," and more make up a collection for which any die-hard YYY fan would scream.
