The National & Marc Maron opened for Yo La Tengo (and Hanukkah is over)

The National

If there’s a Hanukkah equivalent of the Grinch, they’re probably relieved that last night, Wednesday, December 8th, was the final night of Hanukkah and the final night of Yo La Tengo Hanukkah shows. Those in attendance last night were treated to an opening set by a local band called The National and comedian Marc Maron. Frequent YLT collaborators Bruce Bennett (of the A-Bones) and Gil Divine were special guests during the encore, and Hamish Kilgour of the Clean sat in most of the night on guitar.

Here’s the final tally:

12/1 – M. Ward, Todd Barry, Nash Kato
12/2 – The Parting Gifts, Jim Gaffigan, members of The Feelies
12/3 – Jeff Tweedy, Eugene Mirman & Kid Congo Powers
12/4 – Syl Johnson, Jon Glaser, Peter Wolf & Ira’s mom
12/5 – Mission of Burma & Wyatt Cenac
12/6 – Mofungo, Amy Rigby, Wreckless Eric, Mikael Jorgensen, Tara Key, Gil Divine & Eugene Mirman
12/7 – Bonnie Prince Billy, Kurt Braunohler & Kristen Schaal & Nels Cline
12/8 – The National, Marc Maron, Hamish Kilgour, Bruce Bennett, Gil Divine
