Yeah Yeah Yeahs made their live return in New York over the weekend, performing new material to a crowd of just 70 people.

The band performed live at the Union Pool venue as part of a benefit show for the victims of hurricane Sandy on Saturday night (December 8). All money raised from the gig was donated to Waves 4 Water. Support on the night came from Higgins Waterproof Blackmagic, a side project from TV On The Radio's Tunde Adebimpe.

The band ran through a potted history of their back catalogue including early tracks like 'Art Star' and 'Black Tongue' as well as material from their last studio album, 2009's 'It's Blitz!', including 'Heads Will Roll'.

One new song also made it into the 12-song set, a track titled 'Despair', which has been described by Spin as "a spare thumper that recalled Florence and the Machine's 'Dog Days Are Over'.

Scroll down the page for the full setlist from the Union Pool gig as well as a collection of tweets from fans in attendance at the show.

'Runaway'
'Black Tongue'
'Art Star'
