Clap Your Hands Say Yeah - The EARL, Oct. 15, 2005
I released a few tracks from this recording (the new songs) to You Ain't No Picasso back in the fall, but an e-mail from Malcolm R. motivated me to post the full show. It's the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah appearance from The EARL last October. It was a sold-out show and my first taste of live CYHSY. They've garnered a reputation as an inconsistent live act, but I rather enjoyed this set. Fun fact: they were originally scheduled to open for Ambulance LTD at this show, but the bill was flipped about three weeks prior due to CYHSY's surge in popularity.
I don't think Clap Your Hands really requires a write-up at this point, so I'll just provide the show info and leave it at that:
