Hoboken, NJ rockers Yo La Tengo will hit up The Valley this October in support of their new album Popular Songs
As announced via the Matablog, Matador Records' blog, seminal indie rockers Yo La Tengo have announced a spiffy new fall tour, complete with a date at the Marquee Theater October 14. This is in support of their new album, Popular Songs, due out September 8. This is a boon for The Valley's live scene, keeping in form with my prediction that this late summer/early fall will be one for the books.
Yo La Tengo formed in Hoboken, New Jersey in 1984 -- for those of you keeping track, the band is as old as I am. They have an impressive collection of studio albums, dating back to 1986's Ride The Tiger on up through their 2006's I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass. Yo La Tengo has been on the Matador Records roster since 1993, producing 8 albums for the label with the release of September's Popular Songs -- also including their little Condo Fucks project.
The hits keep on coming for The Valley (browse through past show announcements here) and Yo La Tengo solidifies the fact that there is a strong live lineup for the late summer/early fall in The 'Nix.
