John Zorn and Marc Ribot

John Zorn (sax) and Marc Ribot (guitar), playing a set of free jazz, were the surprise opener at Yo La Tengo‘s third Hanukkah show at Maxwell’s last night (12/23). It’s the kind of music you’ll find played regularly (often by Zorn and/or Ribot) at Zorn’s downtown club The Stone. I talked to two Maxwell’s attendees after the show. Both had the same sort of “I wanted to like it…I know they are amazing musicians…” kind of attitude about the 30 minute opening set. Next came a set of comedy by Slovin and Allen which came before Yo La Tengo‘s set which included the special guests Smokey Hormel and Yoni Wolf of Why?. More pictures of the openers below…
