TWJ Went to a Show: Yo La Tengo

Yo La Tengo

Last week I went back to Cincinnati, Ohio, to visit family and friends. It worked out that I was able to see the lovely Matt, and even go to a concert. We went to see Yo La Tengo,. I had heard a lot about them and even listened to quite a bit of their music.  I knew they had been around for a while and had a cult following, but I didn’t realize that they put on incredible live shows.


I think they played us about every style of music that I could imagine. Starting off with some experimental noise music, going to hard rock, then to funk and R&B, next a Ben Folds type ballad, and finally a nice folky song to end the night.

They went back and forth between the genres with energy and effortlessness of the experienced and talented musicians that they are. I don’t think they have the same affect on their CDs. If you have a chance, and like a wide variety, and a lot of experimentation, go see Yo La Tengo.
