Yo La Tengo’s Hanukkah Tradition Continues

Yo La Tengo have confirmed their annual The 8 Nights of Hanukkah celebration. On each night of the Jewish holiday, the veteran indie group will play an intimate show at Hoboken, NJ’s Maxwell’s. As in years past, the shows will feature a variety of openers, a comedy segment, surprise guests and a range of covers. Past surprise guests have included Jeff Tweedy, David Byrne, The National, Will Oldham and many, many others. Since Hanukkah overlaps with Christmas and Christmas Eve this year, the trio will also perform on two nights where rock clubs are traditionally dark.

Yo La Tengo will perform under their alter ego the Condo Fucks at New York’s Mercury Lounge on Friday, November 4. For more on the band, be sure to read Yo La Tengo frontman Ira Kaplan’s interview with Glen Campbell in the current issue of Relix.
