Yo La Tengo @ prospect Park

Yo La Tengo recreated the show last night (July 13, 2006) in Prospect Park to a massive Brooklyn crowd. People just seem to come out of the wordwork when the ticket price is FREE. I couldn’t even see Yo La Tengo from where I was sitting and my view of the screen was often blocked by the many people constantly walking around (not their fault). Add tons of people talking through the whole thing (their fault), and this show should have been a disaster – but by the second or third song all the distractions faded to the background and I just enjoyed the seemingly perfectly timed “trippy”, sometimes exciting, sometimes humorous, live music playing to (often dirty) images of jellyfish, sea horses, shrimp, and octopi. Qbertplaya had a much better seat.
