Anon 10:32,
Yo La Tengo is the last pool party i.e. free show there. Sonic Youth is the last show there ever.

This is pretty awesome. I was wondering when some Jersey bands were going to play the pool. I'll be there.

Posted by Sarah | August 1, 2008 10:45 AM

don't bother showing up at 2, you won't get in. i'll be there at noon with a hooka and a pizza.

Posted by Anonymous | August 1, 2008 11:06 AM

lol for yo la tengo/titus andronicus? i think it'll be alright to show up at 2.

Posted by Anonymous | August 1, 2008 11:18 AM

Wouldn't it be better to pay $30 to see Yo La Tengo in Maxwells during the holidays then to wait 4 hours to get in?

Posted by Anonymous | August 1, 2008 11:21 AM

what about black keys/tapes n tapes?

Posted by Anonymous | August 1, 2008 11:22 AM

i agree with 11:18.

YLT are not some bullshit radio band like MGMT.

They barely sell out webster that is 1500. the pool is like 5500 tix. who knows how many when free.

OMG! Ebony Bones is playing!!

Greatest line up in history - is she playing any other shows?

Posted by Anonymous | August 1, 2008 12:31 PM

Yo La Tengo must like to play last shows at places.
They played the last night at Magnetic Field, and now this.

Posted by Kurt C. | August 1, 2008 12:39 PM

Ha, all you guys saying you'll get in showing up at 1pm or 2 are suckers. I'm actually in line right now...for yo la tengo.

! ebony bones !
great, can't wait

Posted by snag | August 1, 2008 5:29 PM

this show will probably get packed by 2 PM, but I bet a bunch of those dummies will get bored and go to the Turkey's Nest and listen to Journey (or whatever one does at that place) 3 songs into YLT's set.

that's why I love them: they're so amazing, dumb ting tingers can't even begin to get it.

YAY for shittalk!
