Yo La Tengo with help from some Feelies, Maxwell's 12/10/2012 (via YLT)
Paradise

I said it last night, and I just may say it again tomorrow: Without the Feelies, I can't really imagine our band being around today. They wanted to contribute in some way to the recovery from Sandy, and really I have no words to describe how it felt to have them spend night three of Hanukkah with us.

We had been trying to get John Mulaney to join us over Hanukkah for years now, and last night it finally happened. People, I'm not going to lie to you--my mind is mush. I laughed from start to finish, but all I can recall this morning is him hobnobbing with the musical guests at Saturday Night Live and the single funniest thing that ever happened at a McDonald's (bumping this to second place). - [YLT]

Night 3 of Yo La Tengo's 2013 Hanukkah Week shows at Maxwell's featured Hoboken legends The Feelies as the opening band and, though it was still a 16-song set, it was probably one of the shorter performances the band have ever done at Maxwell's. Percussionists Stanley Demeski and Dave Weckerman joined YLT for the last half of their set, and the rest of the band helped out on a few songs as well including a cover of the Velvet Underground's "Sister Ray" to finish the night. Setlists for both The Feelies and Yo La Tengo are below (courtesy WFMU's Jesse Jarnow) along with video.

John Mulaney was the Night 3's comedian and the mix CD was provided by YLT's James McNew. It was a benefit for the Food Bank of New Jersey. Who will open on Night 4? UPDATE: It's Real Estate and Todd Barry.

Setlists and video from Night 3 are below.

whoever faked this yesterday really got me:

"Yes, Feelies tonight for sure, BUT several amazing guests for the YLT set. One near-yearly regular, one mind-blowing first-timer."

so that that doesn't happen to anyone tonight, i can assure you that tonight's opener is paul banks and the comedian is marc maron.

For those of you coming from Brooklyn, I found out last night that there is a Hummus Bar located near the SW corner of 7th and Washington.

The hummus bar is not good, you're better off going to Mamoun's on 5th & Wash.

for those of you coming from Brooklyn, what's the best way to get there given the PATH situation? drive? any other options?

"For those of you coming from Brooklyn, what's the best way to get there given the PATH situation? drive? any other options?"

I'd drive. Other options are bad. You can take a ferry from Manhattan (NY Waterway) there but it'd be a one-way trip--they stop running back around 10pm and the bus system is not great. I think the last bus to Port Authority splits from Hoboken around midnight.

"Wow. Really wish I would've caught this."

You mean unlike the countless other times the Feelies (or side project) opened up for YLT?

"so that that doesn't happen to anyone tonight, i can assure you that tonight's opener is paul banks and the comedian is marc maron."

Marc Maron was so boring a couple of years ago. Then again, it was perfect for losers that listen to NPR.

A bunch of us caught the 126 bus back to NY last night around 1:10am, after the show ended. I don't know what time it stops running on weeknights, but it's not midnight.

Parking in Hoboken is the worst.
