I love shooting Karen O. She is so expressive and fun to watch. All of these pix come from just the first three songs of the show...

The three members of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs must love the Bay Area. Most of their cities they only played one night, where we got two. Plus, their video Zero was shot in San Francisco.

Nick Zinner traded the guitar for a keyboard on the new record, but luckily for us at the Fox, his fingers were on his guitar for most of the night.

Multiple times throughout the night, confetti blasts shot off into the audience. The first few were set off by Karen O and a bunch of shiny red "Y"s shot into the air and then fluttered down.

At one point in the show, the eyeball was turned around to show a full moon.

Every time I've seen the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, guitarist Nick Zinner has brought a camera out on stage to shoot pix of the audience. Not sure if he's ever posted them, but I think those pix would be fun to take a look at.

Each time I've seen the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Karen O has done a spit take of some sorts. I thought she hadn't done that on Thursday night, until I saw this picture, where she makes like a human fountain.

The two-person group put on a fun show, with no instruments, but plenty of pizazz.

In-between the opening songs of the set, the band stopped to say "Hello Oakland."

They then showed that they were from Portland, Oregon and then zoomed in on Google Earth to the street view of their house, putting their address up on screen. Hope you guys like stalkers!
