Strong if you play only bass, but nothing's new from guitar Karmeleaux
This song is fairly unique in the world of basses, and was especially so when it came out. It's also structured a bit unusually as a song, so I'll try my best to place them in the correct section musically.

The verse rhythm is eights rooted on the green, which goes something like G G B O G G R Y. After a few repetitions, it goes to a chord rhythm, and they keep going back and forth. Later in the song it gains some short scales between the two.

The chorus is hard to place in this song, but I'll say it's where Karen O. is going 'choke' a lot. This is repeated pull-offs from orange to green, and it doesn't last long enough to frustrate you.

The bridge of the song focuses around doublestrumming a lot, but moves around and it's got some really neat climbs in there.

Overall, it's got some unique and enjoyable rhythms to me, and doesn't go on long enough for any of them to really get old (although I'd be impressed if anyone can upstrum the doublestrum sections).

A problem I do have with it is that it's near identical to the guitar chart. This is not a coincidence, as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs don't have a dedicated bassist, so their guitarist does all the work there. As such, it's really not that unique of a bass if you've played the guitar chart, so it's probably only average then.

Your experience with 'Date with the Night' depends on two things.

1) Your strumming ability and
2) Your ability with HO/PO

The song is littered with these 'The Kill' like HO/PO so it's a bit of a nasty surprise also there's one section where you encounter a wall of chords

The first thing you'll notice is that it's completely different than 'Maps' so prepare for a nasty surprise if you walk in thinking it isn't
