Eight Nights of Hanukkah with Yo La Tengo
After a year off, Yo La Tengo will return to Hoboken, NJ’s Maxwell’s for a series of charity Hanukkah shows. The indie pioneers have played the tiny Hoboken club during Hanukkah when their schedule permits for many years. Each night will feature a different opening act, a comedy set, a unique mix CD and a full Yo La Tengo performance (which in the past has included special guests, rare covers and other surprises). This year’s Hanukkah shows will take place from December 1-8. Though Yo La Tengo’s special guests are still unknown, David Byrne, Alex Chilton, Jim James, Tortoise and Spoon’s Britt Daniel have all sat in with the band during its Hanukkah gigs over the years.
