Yo La Tengo - Tonight!

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Tue, Oct 20, 2009 at 10:25 AM

What did my family ever do to Yo La Tengo to make you to hate them so much?

It should go without saying that Yo La Tengo's collaboration with the Mr. Show cast produced the funniest music video ever—personally, I'm a big fan of the Rock School lesson, "Burning Out vs. Fading Away"—and the jokes still hold up over a decade after the release of the "Sugarcube" single and I Can Hear the Heart Beating as One. The band is playing the Crystal Ballroom tonight, and while they might not be as poetic as a reading of the lyrics to Rush's "Closer To The Heart," the band can still hold their own after all these years.
