Wednesday Night : Yo La Tengo (Continue) Murdering The Classics On Behalf Of WFMU

By Gerard on Monday, February 24th, 2014

In what has become a tradition almost as cherished as declarations the New York Mets are financially solvent, Yo La Tengo will make their annual pilgrimage to WFMU’s Jersey City studios this Wednesday night (February 26, 9pm eastern) for the Evan “Funk” Davies show (co-hosted this week by longtime YLT associate Gaylord Fields). As you’ve probably already guessed, for the the paltry sum of $100, Yo La Tengo will (hopefully) cover a song of your selection, with all funds going to WFMU’s annual Marathon.

You can listen or watch a live video stream at WFMU.org, but be advised that unlike most of the station’s wonderful programing, this show will not be archived for on-demand consumption. You can submit your pledges and song requests here in advance.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – In Session At WFUV

By Gerard on Friday, February 21st, 2014

Yo La Tengo: listen again to their BBC 6music session

By Stuart on Tuesday, December 10th, 2013

Yo La Tengo – posing for their Press Pop photo shoot

Given that James, Georgia and Ira have been on tour for pretty much the entire year since Fade was released back in January, you’d think we might have let up on twisting their arm for promotional opportunities, but with the promise of a good meal after, we persuaded them to record a BBC 6music session for Marc Riley last night.  Playing Ohm around the 46 minute mark, they followed with some chat and two more songs, with renditions of Paddle Forward and I’ll Be Around from the 1:16 mark – listen to all of those here.

Gideon Coe’s 6music show followed where the band had pre-recorded Is The Point Of It, also online now.  Currently on their way back to the US, their final shows of the year take place at The Bell House and are all sold-out.

Last Friday’s DARKSIDE session for KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic went so well that we thought hey, why not do that again, but further north? And so it is that Nicolas and Dave will be going on the air live at Seattle’s KEXP in just under half an hour (2pm EST/11am PST, to be exact). Listen online at KEXP.org, or in Seattle at 90.3FM.

Today on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic, for the first time ever, the duo of Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington (pka (DARKSIDE) will be performing live on US radio. I’m sitting in the control room right now as they run through songs from their debut full-length, Psychic, and trust me, you don’t want to miss this. In Los Angeles, the spot on your radio dial is 89.9FM, and you can also listen online worldwide at KCRW.org. They go on at 2:15PM EST/11:15AM PST, so you have plenty of time to mentally prepare yourself.

Kurt Vile To Appear On The Next-To-Next-To-Next-To-Next-To Last Episode Of “The Best Show On WFMU”

By Gerard on Wednesday, November 13th, 2013

“Lonestar Statesman” – photo by Aaron Sainz

How does a fellow follow being named one of GQ Magazine’s Men Of The Year? I don’t know how Daniel Craig, Tom Brady or Justin Timberlake might answer that question, but if you’re KURT VILE the answer is so blatantly obvious I can’t believe you didn’t see it coming from the goddamn headline above. Next Tuesday night, November 19 at 9pm eastern, Kurt will be be a guest on WFMU‘s “The Best Show On WFMU“, as host Tom Scharpling enters his final month of toiling for free weekly programs for the station. It’s hardly Kurt’s first appearance on “The Best Show”, but given the respective trajectories of their careers —- Kurt entering an orbit only occupied by the entertainment world’s biggest stars, Tom preparing for a transition his handlers say might make him “the next Pat O’Brien” — this could be the final time these two icons are in the same room.

Or maybe they do something similar in a few months. Either way, you won’t want to miss it.
