"...big thanks to S.I.T. & Die, The Black Lips, John Oliver, Gary Panter and Joshua White. YLT tour phase 2 begins Friday in Montreal!" - Yo La Tengo

DOWNLOAD: Yo La Tengo - Here to Fall (MP3)

Yo La Tengo

"YLT augmented their show with a light show by Joshua White and Gary Panter projected on a large screen at the rear of the stage. It very much reminded me of the time they played The Sounds Of Science at the Prospect Park Bandshell, but this time without the angry octopus. From the Mezzanine, I had a good vantage point from which to spy the setup. The band played on the stage where you'd expect them to be while the light show crew of about ten people worked behind the screen.

Pretty nifty! It resulted in a great psychedelic backdrop which pulsated and evolved with the trippy music, kinda like seeing the old Pink Floyd laser light show at the Hayden Planetarium, except live and more organic. [During] "Here To Fall"...they brought on a small troupe of accompanying strings" [QbertPlaya]

A video of "Here to Fall" from the show is below.

Andrew stopped by the show last night (9/25) and took some pics, but he got there too late to see opener Black Lips (who after the show went to Brooklyn and caused some WAVVES-related trouble). He did see host John Oliver, and Susquehanna Industrial Tool and Die Co, who were playing in the lobby, though. How was the show? More of his pictures below...

and they encored with "Autumn Sweater", "Dog Meat" (condo fucks), and "The whole of the law" (the only ones cover), from what I can remember.

Posted by jkristian | September 26, 2009 8:38 PM

It wasn't "More Stars Than There Are in Heaven" off Popular Songs?

4 pictures of the merch table?

Seriously, the photogs on this site need to realize that they don't have to upload every byte from their camera flash cards.

I'm glad someone mentioned the photos. Pretty far below the usual Brooklyn Vegan standards. A lot of them look like camera phone shots.

DOG MEAT is a Condo Fucks tune and a Flamin' Groovies cover. Ira dedicated it to the A-Bones, a garage band he plays with sometimes.
