Yo La Tengo ready new LP, touring, including Kings Theatre (w/ BV presale) ++ Little Black Egg Big Band show

Yo La Tengo in 2015

Yo La Tengo, who recently celebrated their 30th anniversary, will release a new album, Stuff Like That There, on August 28 via Matador. Reuniting with former member Dave Schramm on electric guitar, the Hoboken legends are also revisiting the Fakebook concept, mixing covers (Hank Williams, The Cure, Lovin’ Spoonful, Antietam), redoing a few of their own songs, and recording a couple new ones as well. You can stream a couple songs from the LP below.

The band, who recently played a Cake Shop anniversary show as Condo Fucks, will be on tour this fall, most of it in an acoustic setup, with Ira on acoustic guitar, Schramm on electric, Georgia up-front on a small kit, and James on upright bass. They’ve just added a NYC date to the acoustic tour, happening October 10 at Kings Theatre with special guest Nick Lowe. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/19) at 10 AM but you can get them early via the BrooklynVegan presale which begins Thursday (6/18) at 10 AM. Check back Thursday morning for the password.

Before that Yo La Tengo, along with Taylor Ho Bynum, Daniel Carter, Susie Ibarra and Tony Maimone, will be performing as The Little Black Egg Big Band at Red Hook’s Pioneer Works on June 28. Oren Ambarchi will open the Pioneer Works show. Tickets are on sale, and here’s a little more info:

Named for Georgia Hubley’s rarely performed solo guitar project Little Black Egg, the expanded Little Black Egg Big Band features Hubley and her Yo La Tengo compatriots Ira Kaplan and James McNew, joined by bassist Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu), an array of jazz mainstays including Susie Ibarra, Daniel Carter, Taylor Ho Bynum, and more TBA.

All tour dates are listed, along with new album art/tracklist and song streams, below…
