A few months ago, a mysterious email was sent out from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs  inviting fans to a free and hush-hush performance at the Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn. There were two performances, each with a capacity of just 100 people and the second show being exclusive to just the ladies-- no vagina, no show.

Each member was dressed like a character from an old ... Read More

Not only were the omelettes and french toast amazing, but the fancy pomegrante cocktails really sweetened the deal as well.  Burlesque dancers, including The World Famous Bob, (high) kicked off the show with performances down the runway.
