The members of psychedelic rock group Yeasayer have been defying the mainstream with their experimental synths, unique three-part harmonies, and melodic sound since making their debut in 2006 with All Hour Cymbals. The band's passion radiates through the crowd as they play fan favorites like "Ambling Alp" and "O.N.E." with a fervor that can't be matched. Their sonically innovative, hook-filled tracks are layered with detail, and they truly come alive for fans at the band’s intense live shows.
Brooklyn-based act Yeasayer started performing together in 2006 and began earning serious attention a year later when they made their first festival appearance at SXSW. They made their full-length album debut in 2007 with All Hour Cymbals, which received rave reviews from publications like Pitchfork and Entertainment Weekly for its genre-bending sound and led to opening spots on tours with Beck and MGMT. The band continued their success with 2010's Odd Blood -- a record that peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Independent Albums chart and included several songs that were featured on popular TV shows. Their 2012 album Fragrant World led to a number of sold-out headlining dates, high-profile festival appearances, and late night talk show performances, and they continued to earn hundreds of thousands of fans along the way. With their continually evolving sound and impressive showmanship, Yeasayer amazes concertgoers with their dance-worthy collection whenever they take the stage.
FANS WHO BOUGHT TICKETS SAY:
"This was my first time watching Yeasayer live and they didn't disappoint! They had a good mix of upbeat/chill songs and played the favorites. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but their mix of styles translates well in a live setting."
"Yeasayer sounded just as great live as they do on their records. The energy in the room was infectious, and I'd definitely see them again when they come through town."
"It was a great show, Yeasayer especially - great music always, but in concert they are truly spectacular. Beautiful stage set and light show, but it always felt like a complement to the music. the new drummer (standing up the entire set) is awesome too!"
