Yeah Yeah Yeahs/The Kills/Har Mar Superstar: Astoria, London March 3rd

Josh Rinkoff, Rock's Backpages, March 2003

Last week I went to the Astoria to see hip-pop miracle-workers-cum-funkmeisters N*E*R*D get down with their bad selves. This week is the turn of New York’s "next big thing" the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I don’t know if the good people of the Astoria have ever heard of maximum capacity because on both occasions the venue represented more of a death trap than a music venue.
