Carnegie Museum of Art and The Andy Warhol Museum welcome back Yo La Tengo, one of the most respected and unwavering bands in independent music. For more than 30 years and 14 albums, the group has charted its own course. As mentioned in a Stereogum review, “In the best possible sense, Yo La Tengo can feel less like a band and more like a beloved national trust.” Similar to Television, which played the Carnegie Music Hall last fall, Yo La Tengo sits prominently on the trajectory of bands influenced by the Velvet Underground and its impact on rock music in the 60s.
This unique evening also features the highly praised Nashville band Lambchop (led by songwriter Kurt Wagner), which has deftly subverted and honored traditions of country music, for almost 20 years. On this rare and special occasion, both bands pull from their extensive catalogs, as well as perform new material and collaborate on each other’s songs.
This performance is co-presented with 91.3 WYEP.
