Sound Series: Yo La Tengo with special guest, Lambchop
Wednesday, Sep 14, 2016 8:00 PM EDT
Carnegie Music Hall, Pittsburgh, PA
The Warhol welcomes back Yo La Tengo, one of the most respected and unwavering bands in independent music. For over thirty years and fourteen albums they have charted their own course. As mentioned in a Stereogum review, “In the best possible sense, Yo La Tengo can feel less like a band and more like a beloved national trust”. Similar to Television, who provided a most memorable evening at the Carnegie Music Hall last fall, Yo La Tengo sit prominently on the trajectory of bands influenced by the Velvet Underground and their impact on rock music in the 60’s. This unique evening will also feature the highly praised Nashville band, Lambchop (led by songwriter Kurt Wagner), who have deftly subverted and honored traditions of country music, for almost twenty years. On this rare and special occasion, both bands will pull from their extensive catalogs, as well as perform new material and collaborate on each other’s songs.
