Half-Assed Yeasayer Omaha Show Review
(now with extra grainy iPhone photos)

I made the trek to Omaha this past Sunday evening to see Yeasayer since they weren't making a stop in Lawrence or KC (which I don't think they ever have, someone please correct me if I'm mistaken). The show was at The Waiting Room, which if you have been wondering why Omaha is stealing so many shows from us, just see a show there and you'll know why. There isn't a single bad line of sight, the sound system is good and the place is new and clean. Getting drinks quickly in a sold out show helped as well.

This is the third time I've seen Yeasayer now, but the first time I've seen them play a headlining show. They've yet to disappoint me and prove to live up to their hype as one of the best live bands around right now. Songs from the new album sounded great next to what now seem like classics like '2080' and 'Sunrise' off the debut. Highlights from the show were 'Tightrope' (off the Dark Was The Night compilation), 'ONE' and 'Wait For The Summer'. If they ever end up coming through town anytime soon, don't miss it.
