Yo La Tengo Tickets
Yo La Tengo TicketsKnown to its fans as YLT, Yo La Tengo has been bringing its signature style of indie rock to audiences since its humble beginnings. YLT first formed in Hoboken, New Jersey, in 1984 through a classified ad. Starting with its debut single, "The River of Water," the band has since produced 15 studio albums, four collaborations, six compilation albums, 15 Extended Plays, 15 B-sides, 22 singles, 19 music videos and two film scores.
Yellow Tango?The eureka moment of band names, Yo La Tengo translates from Spanish into "I have it." Far from any such reference, however, the name refers to a baseball-related anecdote and was chosen by this American band to avoid people imposing their own meanings on any name that was in English. Given the phrase uses the female-gender syntax, another, more literal, translation of the name would be, "I got her." Whatever Yo La Tengo means to the band itself, the name translates to a reputation of over 35 years of making music in often unique and innovative ways. For one, over the years, YLT has been fond of appearing for impromptu performances of cover songs on WFMU New Jersey, a freeform radio station. YLT has even appeared incognito as "Condo F*cks" at Magnetic Field in Brooklyn.

What can I expect from Yo La Tengo?Yo La Tengo's brand of indie rock has been described as hovering between noise pop, shoegazing rock, punk, folk, electronic music, long noise jams and experimental rock. In addition to its wide catalog of original music, Yo La Tengo is also famous for playing an equally wide variety of cover songs. At least some of the covers Yo La Tengo may play live come from its album of exclusively covers, F*ckbook, with songs by Carl Wilson, Brian Wilson and Roger Christian, Felix Cavaliere, Reg Presley, Ray Davies and Richard Hell. This, a take on an earlier Yo La Tengo album, Fakebook, that combined YLT originals with covers of songs by The Kinks, Gene Clark, Daniel Johnston and Cat Stevens.
