For the fourth night of Yo La Tengo‘s annual Hanukkah run at the Bowery Ballroom, the band welcomed Christmas as the opener, James McNew‘s band prior to Yo La Tengo and a perfect Christmas Day choice.
They also had comedian Todd Barry as their comedic support and Sonic Youth‘s Lee Ranaldo stopped by for some jamming, too.
