Beginning in 2001, Yo La Tengo have spent most Hanukkahs performing 8 nights of sold out benefit shows across the festival of lights.  These wonderful evenings had their inception at Maxwell’s in their former hometown of Hoboken before moving to The Bowery Ballroom in downtown Manhattan.  As if Ira, Georgia and James weren’t enough, their surprise guests have included John Oliver, Ray Davies, David Byrne, Syl Johnson, Sarah Silverman, Lucinda Williams, and Graham Nash.

We cannot come together in person this year, but for just one night, you’re invited to  join us online for a less-frills, stripped-down Hanukkah concert streamed live from The Greene Space’s Lower Manhattan studio.  We’ll be keeping two decades of tradition alive with a three-hour performance featuring the classic format of an opening act, a comedian, and then a set by Yo La Tengo.  As always, proceeds from the concert will be donated to charity.

Please join us for this one night stand!
