Pitchfork preview: Yo La Tengo on Friday
Built to Spill is Pitchfork fest’s headliner Friday, but Yo La Tengo is the band to see. Indie stalwarts for more than two decades, Yo La Tengo is releasing its umpteenth album, “Popular Songs,” in September.
Friday’s performers are participating in Write the Night, which means they’ll play songs requested by fans as determined by Web voting. (Sorry, polls are closed.) Hopefully, Yo La fans dug deep into the band’s catalog, and we’ll get to hear some new songs, too.
