Not even Lockett propped up on a crutch or a terrible voice crack by Brandon at the end of the performance could keep "Helicopter" from sounding gorgeous in that Conan video. Man...how I love that band!

Yo La Tengo with Jeff Tweedy tonight was amazing.

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2010 2:43 AM

did tweedy open for YLT? Or did he just join them?

Posted by Anonymous | December 4, 2010 2:51 AM

Tweedy opened with an acoustic set. Then he joined them and played the first half of their set with him on guitar and vocals! They even did a version of Wilco's Jesus Etc! Absolutely incredible!

LOL -- the ageing hipster twit Moby was standing beside me at Killing Joke with a GF who looked like the elf girl from Bored To Death (maybe she was). Killing Joke was too much for the Xian and he and his girlfriend giggled in derision and left by the fourth song. What a putz.
