Yo La Tengo Confirms Annual Hanukkah Shows
Yo La Tengo’s annual Hanukkah celebration will continue this year. The group will once again perform at Hoboken, NJ’s Maxwell’s every night of the Jewish holiday, which falls on December 8 – 15 this year. Tickets for all eight go on sale this Monday at noon.
In addition to a set of Yo La Tengo, each show will feature a surprise guest opener, a comedian, a special mix CD and, on many nights, special guests. Yo La Tengo also tend to bust out special covers by Jewish songwriters as well as other rare gems from their extensive catalog. The shows will benefit a variety of charities.
