Hanukkah with Yo La Tengo

"Try to Squeeze a Drop of Blood from a Sugarcube"

Hanukkah starts today and there's no better way to celebrate the eight crazy nights than by spending them with Jersey's finest Yo La Tengo at Maxwells in Hoboken. In what's become a somewhat yearly event Ira, Georgia and James will ring in every night with a different set of music, a different opener and gladly give to a different charity. Unfortunately, if you don't already have tickets you're probably going to have to spend each night with Aunt Ethel and her Matza balls. We'll be at night 7, next Monday December 10th. In recognition of Yo La's metaphoric gelt, check out there video for "Sugarcube", which features members of Mr. Show, including David Cross, and is probably the best music video ever. And yes, we know we say that alot.
