OK, we’re a little late with this one. Ira gave us the head’s up about Yo La Tengo playing 2008’s 8 night Hanukkah stand at Hoboken’s Maxwell’s from December 21-28. In the 36 hours since that email and a subsequent Pitchfork story, all of the shows save for December 23 are sold out. There might be a handful of tickets remaining at Tunes in Hoboken or Lower Manhattan’s Other Music, but you’d better act fast.
As in years past, you can expect at least 2 support acts per night (one musical, one perhaps non-musical) a Yo La Tengo set that will probably not resemble the prior evening’s all that much, and the knowledge that your $30.00 ticket price is going to a worthy charity-to-be-determined.
