Did You Catch Yo La Tengo On Jimmy Fallon?

Yo La Tengo

Indie rock royalty Yo La Tengo stopped by Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night studios earlier this month to perform the bright “Ohm” from their latest release, Fade.   Check out their vibrant performance featuring Portlandia‘s Fred Armisen on drums here.

Paste magazine remarked that the album “is just 10 distinctive, beautiful songs in 45 minutes meant to show their languid new peers (Real Estate, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, what have you) who’s boss. It shouldn’t work. It’s to that roaring 20-year streak’s goodwill that it does.”   Rolling Stone similarly raved, “The band revels in its pop modesty, as beautifully as ever.”

Yo La Tengo will return to Madison’s Barrymore Theater next Tuesday (February 5) to perform two sets for their loyal fans.  Get your tickets here.

We’re heading down to the Barrymore in a few hours and hopefully you will be too!  Here are the set times for tonight’s show:

Times New Viking plays at 8:00, followed by a 2 hour (whew!)  Yo La Tengo set, begining at 9:00.

Remember, those of you who want to get a second show under your belt tonight should save your Yo La Tengo ticket stub and head over to the High Noon Saloon after the Barrymore show.  Your ticket gets you 1/2 off the cover to see The Hood Internet!

Saturday’s Double Feature: Yo La Tengo and The Hood Internet (1.23.10)

Yo La TengoThe Hood Internet

You may have noticed that Madison is hosting a pair of outrageously cool bands this Saturday.  Indie gods Yo La Tengo will rock the Barrymore, while The Hood Internet will mix things up at the High Noon Saloon later that evening.

If you’re having as hard of a time choosing which show is more worthy of your attendance as we are, consider this:  those 18 or over arriving at the High Noon Saloon on Saturday night with their Yo La Tengo ticket stub in-hand will receive half off their Hood Internet tickets!  Yup, originally $10, Hood Internet tickets will be discounted to only $5 for those hardcore music fans who refuse to miss out on great live music.

Get tickets to Yo La Tengo here.  Just planning on hitting The Hood Internet show?  Those tickets are available here.

See you at the shows!
