Yo La Tengo’s Hanukkah Shows

I had the distinct pleasure of attending night no.1 of Yo La Tengo’s annual (well, most years) Hanukkah residency at Maxwell’s this past Tuesday. And while it was a terrific show — including performances by Versus, Mark Arm (Mudhoney, Green River, Mr. Epp & The Calculations) and Jon Glaser/Jon Benjamin, I’m in genuine envy of those who managed to hit Wedneday and Thursday’s performances (aided by The Clean and the dB’s, respectively).

Suffice to say there are some amazing surprises in store for the final 5 nights. But if you weren’t fortunate enough to secure a ticket, Ira’s been (ahem) blogging about the experience at Yo La Tengo.com. Not for the first or last time, a member of the label family saves their sharpest prose for a site other than the Matablog.

    this really has nothing to do with YLT or hannukah, but I thought I’d let you guys know anyhow: Scientology apparently hates Matador and has blocked your site with its ScenioSitter filtering software (see http://www.xenu.net/archive/events/censorship/wordlist.html , http://www.matador.recs.com ). Very odd indeed!
