New Jersey’s Yo La Tengo are American indie-rock stalwarts. Since forming in the mid-1980s they have released 14 albums, including classics like 1993’s Painful, 2000’s And Then Nothing Turned Itself Inside Out, and, most recently, Stuff Like That There.
This Olympia Theatre appearance will be their first appearance in Ireland since 2015. It represents the start of a busy year for Yo La Tango which promises a new record and a string of tour dates around Europe and the US.
Whether they play a whisper-quiet acoustic set or a layered performance with blistering distortion, Yo La Tengo’s songwriting class means that they can always be relied upon for top quality entertainment which you’ll see in spades at this Olympia Theatre show.
