SECOND YEASAYER SHOW ADDED DECEMBER 30, EXCLUSIVE MIXTAPE NOW AVAILABLE
Due to demand, Metro has added a second Yeasayer show on Thursday, December 30, 2010. Fans can start their New Years celebrations one day early with this additional show. Tickets to the newly announced show are on sale now for $21 advance, $24 day of show. Heath will open the show, which is 18 & over and starts at 9pm.
Since the release of their critically acclaimed 2007 debut All Hour Cymbals, Yeasayer has been around the world and back again. Known for their psychedelic visuals during live shows, Yeasayer built a reputation for inspiring performances that always leave the audience wanting more. Inspired by musicians hell-bent on sonic experimentation as well as those more comfortable in a pop context, Yeasayer find their domain spanning across the musical spectrum. Their second album, the recently released Odd Blood, plays out at a blistering pace, yet it never sacrifices depth or content. One thing is certain: Yeasayer are accomplished audiologists who are willing to pilfer decades of pop sensibilities and cultural history to create something that is uniquely their own.
Those lucky enough to have seen Yeasayer’s only Chicago headline show in 2010 (a sold out April 29 performance at Metro) know why their live performances are some of the most highly anticipated this city has seen this year. Of that show, Chicago Tribune critic Greg Kot said “The group de-emphasizes rock conventions – rock power chords, heavy-handed drumming – in favor of influences drawn from hip-hop, world music and even disco. Nobody sounds quite like them…”
Additionally, Darko has put together an exclusive mixtape for Metro which is now available for streaming and download at http://soundcloud.com/metrochicago/centipede-mixtape-nye-2010
A limited amount of tickets ARE still available for New Year’s Eve with Yeasayer, but advance purchase is highly recommended.
