So Good You’ll Forget They’re from Jersey: Don’t Miss Yo La Tengo Tonight at Showbox


Unfortunately with the advent of MTV’s Jersey Shore phenomenon, the Garden State’s reputation has become even more tarnished than previously imagineable. It seems that no one can take Jersey seriously, except, of course, those who live there. Snookie jokes aside, there remains a bright spot in Jersey’s bad rap: the Hoboken-born experimental indie pop group Yo La Tengo.

Yo La Tengo has remained a bit of an anomaly for almost 30 years. While they’ve consistently been a favorite of music critics everywhere, they’ve remained largely under the mainstream radar while garnering a devoted cult following. Their sound ranges from fuzzy alt rock to trancey indie jams and everything in between. The trio is also known for their repertoire of cover songs of other popular yet unconventional artists like Daniel Johnston, the Kinks, Neil Young and The Velvet Underground.

The Corin Tucker Band will be joining Yo La Tengo tonight at Showbox at the Market. We guarantee Yo La Tengo’s set will even make you forget they are from Jersey.

2/17 Yo La Tengo/The Corin Tucker Band at Showbox at the Market :: Doors at 7:00 PM :: Tickets are $20 at the door :: All Ages
