We opened night eight with “Ohm” (recorded by John McEntire on YLT’s forthcoming Fade record). Norman helped us out for the rest of the set. We took care of some unfinished business from our repertoire (“The Cone of Silence,” “I Feel Like Going Home”), played some covers both observant (“Goin’ Back”) and non- (“Walking on Ice”). Next up was one-time Teenage Fanclub producer Don Fleming for his classic “Evelyn Marble,” Dylan’s “I Wanna Be Your Lover,” and TFC’s “God Knows It’s True.” We closed with “I Heard You Looking,” from both the Yo La Tengo and Teenage Fanclub book, and — what else? — “Eight Days a Week.” And that was almost that. We climbed the stairs from the basement one last time, already drumming the intro to “Antmusic,” and pulled some percussionists from the front row for a little bonus thunder. Gaylord had a few more observations he wanted to make, and as long as he was there, we backed him on “My Little Red Book” and the Great Gaylord/Condo Fucks classic (by way of the Rolling Stones) “Rice Krispies.” And oh yeah, my mom sang “My Little Corner of the World.” I unplugged the menorah (if I only I had heard it referred to as the meNorman in time to use that joke on stage), and THAT was that.-[YLT]

Norman Blake (Teenage Fanclub), Don Fleming and Gaylord Fields joined Yo La Tengo for the final night of their annual Hanukkah residency at Maxwell’s Saturday night (12/15). Ira’s mom Marilyn Kaplan also made an appearance. You can check out the full setlist below.

Like all the Hanukkah shows at Maxwell’s this year and every year, proceeds from Saturday’s performance were donated to charity, in this case Jersey Shore Relief. The final night’s curated mix cd was from Yoni Wolf of Why? who will be touring in 2013. Yo La Tengo will also be touring a lot more, with a new album, in 2013.

Past YLT Chanukah nights at Maxwell’s this year included guests and openers Barbara Manning, El-P, Real Estate, The Feelies, Sun Ra Arkestra, the Raybeats, and Titus Andronicus/Jon Glaser/Jon Benjamin Andrew Bird.
