New York! Block off these dates: October 13 – 16, 2011 and save them for the return of The Creators Project. Details are still to be finalized but what is known so far is the 3 day event will take place at St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn and a “psycho-opera” featuring Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs will debut.
I attended the Creators Project in 2010 and it was one of the best events I’ve ever been to in my life! It was over 12 hours of art and music and featured performances by The Rapture, Mark Ronson, Interpol, MIA, Gang Gang Dance, Sleigh Bells, Die Antwoord, Tame Impala and many more great artists. I am very excited. Stay tuned to The Creators Project’s blog for more details.

Karen O showering the audience with love!
Happy birthday to Yeah Yeah Yeahs front woman Karen O, this November 22nd. Yeah Yeah Yeahs celebrated their 10th anniversary as a band earlier this year which means Karen O was rockin’ at the ripe age of 22! That makes her even more amazing, according2g. I saw Yeah Yeah Yeahs perform last year and as you can see above, Karen O showered the audience with love. Happy birthday Ms. O!

Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and G
Timing is everything! On September 24, 2010, I was on my way to an appointment when I happened by Mercury Lounge. Rumours are circulating throughout New York that Yeah Yeah Yeahs are performing a secret show to celebrate their 10th anniversary tonight. As always, the rumours were true. As I was walking past the venue, lead singer Karen O was walking into the building! Wow! I’ve had some pretty good timing before, but this really takes the cake! She was super cool and I congratulated her on 10 awesome years. Thanks Karen and here’s to 10 more!

Karen O. of Yeah Yeah Yeahs
New York based indie band Yeah Yeah Yeahs played a sold out show in their home city on September 23, 2009 at Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan. They had a really cool backdrop on stage, which consisted of gigantic beach ball eye-balls. I know they were beach balls because towards the end of the show, they were released into the audience, which went crazy tossing them up in the air. Their music has been featured in all of the uber-popular recent TV shows and lead singer Karen O. definitely has a stage presence that can be felt even up in the cheap seats. The performed hits such as Maps, Y Control and Date with The Night. Were they great live? Is Karen O. totally awesome? Did I have a good time? Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!
See more pictures (including the aforementioned eye-balls) after the jump.
