Not only was Thursday the fifth night of Hanukkah, it was also the 37th anniversary of Yo La Tengo's first-ever show, which happened December 2, 1984 at Maxwell's in Hoboken. To celebrate the double occasion, the band put together a truly special night for the fifth show in their annual Hanukkah run.
First up: Low came all the way from Minnesota to open the show. Their set included a few songs from this year's amazing HEY WHAT, but Low are also no strangers to holiday music and ended their set with songs from their 1999 Christmas EP, and their 2008 single "Santa's Coming Over." Yo La Tengo's Georgia Hubley came out to play keyboards on the final song, "Just Like Christmas," and you can watch video of that, and check out their setlist, below.
