It was a flurry of colored strobes, shimmers, and sparkles as Karen O. and her boys Nick Zinner and Brian Chase -- best known as the New York-based Yeah Yeah Yeahs -- took over the sold-out Marquee Theater in Tempe to deliver a solid set of their arty, dance-y punk to a mass of seriously excited fans.

Joined by touring guitarist David Pajo, the group dove right into an energetic set with O at the helm, catlike and strutting. Girlfriend, who is known for her eclectic outfits, was looking pretty fierce in a multilayered, bedazzled, black-and-white ensemble.
