Yo La Tengo at Maxwell’s, Hanukkah show Day 1 →  December 2, 2010

I’ve always wanted to make it out to one of the YLT Hanukkah shows. This was going to be my year. Only took me 9 years…And after getting back from a 10-day trip to Japan, the show itself was a bit jetlag and beer-filled blur. Not knowing what you’re going to get until you show [...]
