An Evening with Yo La Tengo

parallax image

“Yo La Tengo covers sound unmistakably like Yo La Tengo songs, because they serve the exact same function as the band’s best originals: they’re intimate exchanges, the sound of secrets being revealed.”—Pitchfork

Indie icons Yo La Tengo return to the Wex on the heels of their acclaimed recent release Stuff Like That There, which revisits the concept behind their beloved classic Fakebook and its surprising batch of eclectic covers. The band performs two sets—one acoustic, one electric—with covers that range from Hank Williams to the Cure, new versions of their own tunes, and brand new originals. Join us as Yo La Tengo take the stage in our intimate, superb-sounding Performance Space.

Note: This show is standing room only.
