We went to see Yo La Tengo on Sunday night. It was cool and by “cool” I mean totally sweet. They played at the Fabrik which is a really nice venue. We actually stood on a balcony right over the band. I could read their set list and knew what the next song would be. They played a lot of stuff from the last album plus old favorites. The new stuff is mellower than usual but it is still good. Then they took requests and cracked jokes. 3 encores. Zee Germans lav show. Mach Show!!
Mike Ward opened for YLT and also lent some keyboard/guitar skillz on a few songs. His set was really quiet. I bought his CD called End Of Amnesia and it is really good. Its like a male Catpower/smacked out David Gray thing. Good with a seedless.
