American indie-rock icons Yo La Tengo return to Australia this March for an encore performance of their two set opus: An Evening With Yo La Tengo.

Performed around the world and most recently at Melbourne Festival, An Evening With Yo La Tengo highlights the New Jersey based trio’s huge musical range as explored across their 13 + studio albums and via a variety of nerdish fan-boy / fan-girl cover versions.

If the first set was about Yo La Tengo’s songs, the second bracket was an extended jam session. Sugarcube and an electric version of Ohm built to a crescendo as Kaplan elicited a vast array of freakish sounds from his battered electric guitar. Mr Tough provided a brief foray into bubblegum pop while a cover of the Velvet Underground’s I Heard Her Call My Name was homage to that band’s perennial relevance.THE AUSTRALIAN 21.10.13

The tour will take in a debut performance at the Concert Hall of the Sydney Opera House plus intimate club shows in Brisbane and Melbourne and a one-shot one-set take at Meredith’s Golden Plains Festival – Yo La Tengo’s second appearance at that event.

The hushed beauty, rowdy distortion, and excellent cover material that has defined Yo La Tengo’s career came to life on Friday in one of the most outstanding live shows of the year. – International Pop Press May 2013

With over one hundred if not hundreds of songs to draw from no Yo La Tengo show is ever the same. See ’em once or maybe twice this March.

Tickets for all shows are on sale today (Friday 1st November).
