Yo La Tengo Blast Off

Just a note-- I saw Yo La Tengo this Wednesday, and they opened their set with an energetic rendition of 'Rocket #9.' They also use thin strips of duct tape to hold down notes on their keyboard instruments for drone effects, which impressed me on a very practical level. While it ain't jazz, they are certainly one of the best rock groups I've seen in quite a while. Their drummer Georgia Hubley rates as one of the best rock drummers I've ever seen, too. Well worth seeing.
