Hi everyone. I’m going to come out and say it. You should officially not be allowed to come to tomorrow night’s Yeah Yeah Yeahs show at the Bowery Ballroom if you are not willing to do one of the following: clap, yell, “wooh!”, dance, stomp your feet, smile, jump up and down, throw your hands up in the air, or nod your head.
If last night’s show was hot and heavy like a sauna, tonight’s was as f-cking frigid as a meat locker. Was everyone really tired from working all week or something? I swear I could have heard crickets chirping through some of the crowd lulls during the performance. Seriously, WHERE WAS THE LOVE?
Every other time I’ve seen the Yeah Yeah Yeahs at the Bowery Ballroom (2 or 3 times) it has been nothing short of a semi-contained riot. Most of the times it’s been a violent, lively affair, with people throwing themselves into the air, arms and elbows flailing, beer being sprayed all over the place. I didn’t even break a SWEAT at this show no matter how hard I tried. WHAT THE HELL GUYS?
I’m mad at everyone who didn’t seem to be enjoying themselves. Why was I dancing by myself? I BEST see you freaking out at tomorrow’s show otherwise we are SO OVER. I know there are a lot of fun people coming to the show tomorrow, prove that NYC folks are NOT above having a good time. I know you can do it.
God, don’t even talk to me, I’m so upset. I’m going to watch “Project Catwalk” now. (Thanks K.F.)

Here is the one photo I took (I’m not kidding, I only took one) due to the camera rules at the show tonight. I would suggest bringing your little “non-professional”-looking camera if you plan on seeing the show tomorrow, otherwise you too will be one of the people who was ejected from the venue. (I counted 4 photographers and 1 smoker.) They won’t let anyone with one of them big “fancy” cameras take shots (even without flash) at the show but allow any kid with a PowerShot snap away like a ‘razzi. Go figure.
