There are many reasons that we go and record as many as possible of the Yo La Tengo Hanukkah shows at Maxwell’s every year. Two of those reasons are the amazing guests and also a chance to see our favorites of the band’s songs. On Night 4, both of those reasons were realized. “Mushroom Cloud of Hiss” is always one of those manic closing songs, and we’re excited every time it pops up on the setlist. On this night, it didn’t disappoint. But it was the added bonus of having friend of the site Kid Millions (Oneida, Man Forever) play the whole set including the monster “Mushroom Cloud”. Kid’s drumming is known for his aggression and tirelessness, but it was also during the quieter numbers when his proficiency shone. The show was enhanced by his presence, but the band themselves also kicked it into the next gear with a raging T-Rex cover and a series of high level performances.

I recorded this set in the exact same manner as previous nights and the sound quality is equally superb. Enjoy!

Tonight’s show was a benefit for Hoboken Volunteer Ambulance Corps. As with all of Hoboken’s first responders, they could use your help this holiday season. We ask that if you download this show, you contribute to the charity. Although you are not required to donate to the charity in order to download this show, Yo La Tengo would greatly appreciate it if you would.

    Thanks for the effort (listened to shows 1 and 2 and they are amazing, as usual). This one seems to have expired! reupload, please.
