Yeah Yeah Yeahs were scheduled to play some live shows this year, and while their headlining set at Pitchfork Music Festival 2020 is unfortunately off, being stuck at home isn’t stopping the band from performing together. Last night (May 23rd), they shared a video of a remote performance of the Show Your Bones track “Phenomena.” Instead of doing the typical split-screen setup, the camera focuses on Karen O in a darkened closet while Nick Zinner plays guitar on a laptop in front of her. There are costumes, streamers, strobe lights, and a fog machine. “Fuckin’ party on,” Karen yells at the end of the performance. Watch it below.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs haven’t released a new album since 2013’s Mosquito. Yeah Yeah Yeahs Jam to ‘Phenomena’ During Quarantine Closet Party . The members of Yeah Yeah Yeahs aren’t going to let the coronavirus pandemic stop them from throwing a party, even if it’s at home alone in a closet.

Luppi’s follow up to his concept album about Rome is a concept album about Milan, but weirdly enough it could also be a tribute to some of the great bands that have come out of NYC. Featuring Karen O and the Parquet Courts’ member Andrew Savage, the songs tell tales of the misfits of that great Italian city but they come on sounding like Television, Talking Heads and James Chance, as well as later Yeah Yeah Yeah’s and the Courts themselves. A killer pop record on Dangermouse’s label.
