ACL 2009 Day One: The Yeah Yeah Yeahs Freak Us All Out

Between the giant all-seeing eye, the fountain-like water spitting (although it's a step up from the more traditional beer-spitting) and the costume changes that included a face mask eerily reminiscent of the Jigsaw mask from the Saw movies, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs put on one hell of a show last night.

Enjoy some of our favorite photos from the spectacle below, including Karen O in a hipster Snuggie.
