‘Secret’ Yeah Yeah Yeahs show in Sydney?

Karen O is bringing her “psycho-opera” Stop the Virgens to Vivid LIVE for five nights with a cast that includes her Yeah Yeah Yeahs bandmates Nick Zinner and Brian Chase, plus Money Mark, Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler from The Greenhornes and The Raconteurs), Sam Spiegel (aka Squeak E. Clean from N.A.S.A.) and Jason Grisell (Bubbles).

The shows run at the Opera House starts on Wednesday 30th May, but the night before that The Flinders in Surry Hills will host a one-off improvised experimental jazz collaboration featuring Yeah Yeah Yeahs drummer Brian Chase, local musicians Sophia Brous and Shags Chamberlain and some mysterious “surprise guests”.

The show, which is being advertised on Facebook as Yeah Yeah Yeahs & Australian friends, will also feature your favourite nang-huffing, M83-baiting miscreants Teenage Mothers and Jack Mannix from Circle Pit.

Tickets are $10 on the door.
