The Indie Rock band Yo La Tengo is revisiting their Hanukkah tradition of an eight day span of shows at one of their favorite NYC venues the Bowery Ballroom. They did this last year and as you know if you celebrate the holiday, a gig will happen on each of the nights of Hanukkah 2018. In addition to solid support acts, their fans can expect guest stars at every performance and a lot of special memories and merchandise. If this band interests you at all, you’re going to want to get your tickets as early as possible as last years events all sold out completely well before the month that the holiday even hit.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Hanukkah is not a holiday that we celebrate over at the PiercingMetal HQ but we are always out to help others celebrate their events when the invite is extended. I’ve not followed YLT before but I know that a couple of albums were gifted to me over the years and its interesting stuff. One can’t always listen to only Heavy Metal music after all. My schedule is usually tight during the holidays in general but if I can make one of these shows I will surely report on it for you here on the website. Are you a fan of the band? What do you think about their returning residency for Hanukkah? Chime in down below and while you are at it check out the bands latest release and other stuff via Amazon.com.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I cannot myself say that I’ve ever followed them, I have known many friends who eat this sort of group up and cannot get enough of their shows. That makes me feel that the tickets will go for this residency very quickly. According to what I’ve learned, they will be having unannounced guests across the span of the dates so if Hanukkah is your holiday, come on out to rock for one or all eight nights. Give yourself a present even if this isn’t your celebration since its very likely to be a good time. We love when bands do residency spans here since it just shows how amazing our city can be for live music. Sure we lost Roseland Ballroom some time ago and are waiting on the comeback of Webster Hall, but there are still tons of places to come out to and raise your hands in celebration of melody. If you are a fan of this group, are you excited about the exclusive run? What should the newbie among us expect? Chime in down in those comments below.
