Sunday, September 15 - Live Performance by Yo La Tengo 

Yo La Tengo's Fade is, in many ways, a tidy distillation of the anthemic albums that came before it. From this current vantage point, it still ranks among the best albums of 2013. And the band’s January appearance in Cleveland showcased two sets of emotional rock ‘n’ roll - the first half covering much of the quieter Fade material (plus the slow version of “Big Day Coming”), the back end exploding in feedback-drenched fury. Miraculously, “Ohm” showed up in both sets that night. The stage has always been a second home to Yo La Tengo, who experiment with their songs long past the studio sessions. "The songs kind of start to grow with us. Lengths will change; arrangements will change. ...We're all about growth,” bassist James McNew told Scene earlier this year. Tickets are $20 and the show starts at 8:30 pm. (Sandy)
