Giveaway: Two Pairs of Tickets To Saturday's Granada Theater Show With Yo La Tengo and Times New Viking
For a whopping quarter of a century now, Hoboken's Yo La Tengo has existed comfortably at or near the top of the indie rock heap, showcasing an ever-changing aesthetic that, at various times in the band's career, has seen the band touching on various psych-, garage-rock and shoegaze styles. In this week's dead tree edition of DC9, Observer scribe Chris Parker details as much, praising the band for having "cultivated an encyclopedic knowledge of moves and [boasting] the skills to execute any of them."
The band's upcoming, Saturday night performance at the Granada Theater should be extra special, though, as the band will be joined by up-and-coming Columbus, Ohio-based indie outfit Times New Viking, a group Parker praises as "abrasive yet warm, chaotic but crisp, sweet and sour."
Update: Contest is over. Congrats to our winners!
