Watch Karen O Perform ‘Rapt’ in a Fan’s Living Room

Karen O 'Rapt' Live Video Sofar Sounds New York living room concert 'Crush Songs'

In the lead-up to the release of her debut solo album Crush Songs, Karen O announced that she would hold a handful of listening parties and intimate concerts in fans’ living rooms around the world. Chances are, you weren’t one of the lucky few to either attend these special events or be the one to host the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman in your home, but at least you can check out this video of Karen performing “Rapt” in New York on August 27. For all of her stage power with her regular band, it’s interesting to see O playing solo, looking almost vulnerable as she coos the semi-sweet words and strums her acoustic guitar a few feet away from a roomful of strangers. Watch the performance above, courtesy of Sofar Sounds, and, if you’re lucky, catch Karen O’s handful of shows in California, London, and Berlin.
