Yeah Yeah Yeahs Concert (Osheaga 2009 Montreal) - Karen Dancing In The Rain

Yeah Yeah Yeahs Concert at Osheaga 2009, Montreal on August 2, 2009. Karen Orzolek dancing in the rain (well almost). Abbreviated as YYY, Yeah Yeah Yeahs headlined Osheaga, along with Coldplay, replacing Beastie Boys (who pulled out due to the discovery of a cancerous tumor with vocalist Adam Yauch). Osheaga festival was held at Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Sainte-Hélène island.


About this photo: Note the falling water droplets. It had rained twice during the festival, and some water got accumulated on top of the stage ceiling. During Yeah Yeah Yeahs performance, this water suddenly fell down in a huge chunk (all gone within 10 seconds). Thankfully Karen was a few centimeters away from the downpour.


About the band (from Yeah Yeah Yeahs is a rock band formed in New York City in the late summer of 2000. The band consists of Karen Orzolek (vocals), Nick Zinner (guitar) and Brian Chase (drums). Their music melds genres ranging from new wave to art punk and garage rock using heavy guitars, synthetic sounds, and screaming, erotic, bluesy vocals. Karen O is known for her energetic, animated stage presence, complemented by her outrageously colorful costumes designed especially for her by friend Christian Joy.
