Yo La Tengo at Troy Music Hall

yo la tengo 2015

Revered indie rock band Yo La Tengo is set to play the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall September 23. Tickets go on sale to the general public this Friday (June 5) -- they're $15/$27/$34.

The band has a new album coming out in August. Tour blurbage:

On August 28, we'll be releasing the new Yo La Tengo album, 'Stuff Like That There', a 14 song collection of covers, originals and reworking(s) (see below) that happens to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the band's landmark 1990 album, 'Fakebook'. Recorded with Gene Holder, 'Stuff Like That There' has the trio of Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley and James McNew augmented by the guitarist and former Yo La Tengo member Dave Schramm, with James negotiating the wonders of the upright bass for the first time. This specific fearsome foursome -- playing material from 'Stuff Like That There' and maybe, possibly/probably (we really don't dictate repertoire around here) 'Fakebook' will kick off a world tour on September 23 in Troy, NY. These will almost certainly be your only opportunities to see Yo La Tengo take the stage in this particular format ...

The show on Wednesday, September 23 starts at 8 pm.
