Yeasayer show mad love for SF at Mezzanine

YeasayerPhotos by Sam Heller

A highlight performance for Mezzanine’s 10 year Anniversary concert series in San Francisco, Yeasayer performed this past Friday to a sold out crowd, and they were accompanied by fast-rising Wild Belle as the featured act.

The club-sized venue provided the crowd with the most intimate show that Yeasayer has played in the Bay Area over the past 5 years. Having sold out both The Fillmore and Fox Theater their last two visits, the audience was treated to a side of the band that most had likely not yet witnessed. Stripped down to simple house lights and absent of their optically illusive stage designs, the band kept the show simple, treating the crowd to a performance-based set absent of the frills.

Their set list pulled from from all three of their full lengths with highlights such as “Ambling Alp,” “One” and “Reagan’s Skeleton” whipping the crowd into a full frenzy. The band fed off the energy running through the audience, which remained at an all time high throughout. At any point you could look around and catch crowd members fully immersed, singing along and dancing to every song. Everyone knew how lucky they were to be there and the feeling resonated mutually with the band.

At the end of their set, front man Chris Keating said, “I don’t live here, but I truly believe this is the best city.” Directly after the words were uttered, I received a text confirmation that they will be included on the Outside Lands 2013 bill. The Yeasayer love remains reciprocal in the Bay Area, and if last Friday is any indicator of what they have in store for August, their OSL festival set should not be missed.

  7. The 41,000 square foot Cascades Indoor Waterpark was THE place to ride out the frigid Friday
    night, according to our eleven year-old. You will also much like the fact that the energy cord measures 20 feet long, so you may
    use one outlet to clean a large area. There is a beautiful light-filled relaxation lounge that functions primarily as a space to wait
    for your therapist and treatment area to be ready.
