band is so good i won't even bitch about not getting submission cred.
Love yah avatar. Last night to end the regular set they played a version of "I Heard You Looking" that was prolly around fifteen minutes long and featured members of Calexico on pedal steel, vibraphone, additional percussion and organ. About 2/3 of the way through the song, Ira went fucking ballistic during a solo like he does and start flailing his guitar around and untuning it until it was just total dissonance while he did some crazy whammy bar stuff. Then he after building up a ton of feedback he set it on top of the amp, a roadie was there with another guitar and he grabbed it and continued the solo.

It was the greatest thing I'd ever witnessed probably.

i caught em in Nashville this past weekend, where they played two sets and an encore. incredible show. the Story of Yo La Tengo live was incredible, and Ira is insane to see play guitar live.
Nice dude, yeah I saw the setlist from that show and it looked great. Ira seriously blew me away, like damn
