The 8 Nights of Hanukkah with Yo La Tengo

(Dec. 2-9) — So frequently compared to the Velvet Underground that they were featured in the 1996 film "I Shot Andy Warhol," Hoboken-based Yo La Tengo has explored the extremes of feedback-driven noise rock and sweetly melodic pop. It has always been the band to bridge the gap between critical acclaim and indie popularity.

As Yo La Tengo's career has developed since its 1984 inception, The New York Times remarks that it specialize in "guitar-driven songs about the compromise and joy of daily life." The band draws a cult-like following along with new fans who dig its sound. For the unfamiliar, think The Weepies mashed up with The Velvet Underground and hints of The Flaming Lips. Modern and timeless at the same time. Its music at various moments has encompassed folk, punk, electronica, jam, shoegazer rock and more.

18 and over.
