Light Speed

We borrowed that brilliant title from the early March 2000 City Paper preview of our first show - Chris Speed's Yeah No at the Plays and Players Theatre. Nate Chinen, who has since graduated to The New York Times, writes "Yeah No’s sound is easier to identify than it is to define. Speed’s full, dry tenor is only one pigment on a vivid canvas — along with throbbing electric bass, atmospheric trumpet and precarious percussive textures." I think it's safe to say that some things haven't changed all that much in ten years - in this case, for the best. This Friday, we'll be hosting an extremely rare visit from Yeah No for THE special 10th anniversary celebration. We'll be sharing our excitement with you by serving cupcakes from Philly Cupcake (to the first 100 ticket buyers) and local beer, the first cup of which will be on us.  So, really, you have no excuse. To say that Friday's show is a bargain would be an understatement. See you there.
