Last night, Yo La Tengo continued their Hanukkah run at New York’s Bowery Ballroom with the third of eight consecutive nights at the venue, once again welcoming surprise openers and guests throughout the night.
The evening kicked off with opening performances from comedians Jon Benjamin and Jon Glaser, along with a set from The Sadies. The headliners then took the stage for another round of originals and covers, with the special guests revealed as filmmaker Jim Jarmusch and producer/composer Carter Logan (who form the duo SQÜRL). The two first helped out on a cover of Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and stuck around for the remainder of the set. The encore featured Travis and Dallas Good of openers The Sadies and included covers of Bob Dylan’s “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues” and Love’s “A House is Not a Motel.”
