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.

Also, playing Friday are local heroes Jesus Lizard and Tortoise. Jesus Lizard is in the midst of a reunion tour. We’ll see if these guys can still crank.
