Yo La Tengo Announce Fall Tour

Yo La Tengo's 12th studio album (13th if you count Condo Fucks), Popular Songs, is due out on Sept. 8.

Seen them TONS of times...'round twenty at this point. Some sets have been less good than others but I've never been disappointed. YLT, for me, is one of the most consistently entertaining indie bands out there, along with Lambchop, Giant Sand, Angels of Light, and Animal Collective. Especially when I hold their sets up against the far more celebrated indie or quasi-indie bands like Pavement or, whose live shows veer(ed) towards and (sometimes) far away from brilliance.
