Yeah Yeah Yeahs: Put that Shit Away

Posted by - 01:41 PM on 04/09/13
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs' recently posted this sign (also in the replies) at their show asking fans to: "not watch the show through screen on your device/camera" and to "put that shit away." Best idea ever, or best idea ever?

But isn't it great when you find old footage of a band that otherwise would not have ever been seen? Without someone videotaping those old shows, most would never see them...and the first thing I think is, "that's so awesome that someone was there to film this"

I've seen this type of thing many times over the past year, no one pays attention to the signs though sadly

Youtube is littered with bad sound quality recordings and like 30 second clips of songs. I don't even know what the point of uploading most of those vids are. So yeah, best idea ever. I'll at best snap a couple pics of the stage or something but that's it. If you're gonna sit there and film, you should've just stayed home and watched the show on Youtube for free.

Wouldn't be surprised if the bands that are truly against it come up with light shows that discourage people to film the show.

Just another reason that I love this band. It's the small things.

How about just stop whipping your camera out for everything in general?

I love this. I can't stand standing behind some one who is holding up their phone/camera and taping a performance.

There's a very broad difference between someone taping a show, ten, fifteen, twenty years ago, back when only a handful of people went to shows with camcorders to record the shows out of actual consideration and for posterity, than today when EVERYONE has a recording device on their phone and who record it for no reason other than to share snippets of low-quality video on social networking sites.
