(Marymoor Park) Though it came a solid 10 years after their debut, Fever to Tell, and five since their last album, It's Blitz!, this year's Mosquito was a welcome return for pioneering New York indie-rock trio Yeah Yeah Yeahs. (Its cover, however, is a different story.) Though not much has changed over the years in their up-tempo dance-punk sound—other than adding more electronic elements to "keep up with the times" and pushing their experimentalism to the point of a Dr. Octagon collaboration—Karen O and co. have outlasted most other bands from this genre/time period with the quality of their records alone. Their live shows, which have always been somewhere between a prop-adorned arena-rock performance and rowdy basement punk-club show, likely haven't faltered a bit, either. With Har Mar Superstar.
