James McNew in Philly in Sept (more by David Andrako)

Yo La Tengo, who are now selling a Hanukkah t-shirt for charity for a limited time (if you can get the link to work), are playing eight sold out Hanukkah shows at Maxwell's later this month.

Dump, aka the other project of Yo La Tengo's James McNew, is playing a show at Spike Hill in Brooklyn tonight (12/11) with The Medium Necks and Asuna. Tickets are still available (and probably will be at the door).

Spike Hill, the Williamsburg bar and music venue conveniently located on Bedford right near the L, has also announced that O'Death will be playing there on New Year's Eve. Tickets are on sale.

O'Death have also announced a January 2012 tour with Brownbird that has them playing another NYC show at Le Poisson Rouge on 1/21. All O'Death dates are listed below...
