Jeff Tweedy Joins Yo La Tengo’s Hannukah Party

Yo La Tengo kicked off their week of Hanukkah shows on December 1. M. Ward, Mission Of Burma, and the Parting Gives have already stopped by the Maxwell’s shows. And on the third night Jeff Tweedy stopped by for an acoustic set of Wilco, Uncle Tupelo, Yo La Tengo songs, and covers, including a cover of Gary U.S. Bonds’ “Seven Day Weekend,” (changed to “Eight Day Weekend” to fit the holiday). Each of the eight nights benefits a charity. For night three they chose Elsyian Charter School of Hoboken, and had some school children perform YLT songs for the audience before Tweedy came out. Check out “Jesus, Etc.” “Shot In The Arm,” “I Am Trying To Break Your Heart,” and more from the show below, shot by our friend Stephen Crocker:
