Sing Out Loud Festival welcomes Yo La Tengo to the Backyard Stage at The St. Augustine Amphitheatre on Saturday, September 9, 2023. The FREE show is for all ages and is part of the Festival’s diverse musical offerings this September.
Yo La Tengo is one of indie rock’s most respected and enduring bands. They’ve raced time for nearly four decades and they just keep winning. The trio’s latest victory is called “This Stupid World”, a spellbinding set of reflective songs that resist the ever-ticking clock. Music that’s not so much timeless as time-defiant.
Part of how Ira Kaplan, Georgia Hubley, and James McNew escape time is by watching it pass, even accepting it when they must. Of course, times have changed for Yo La Tengo as much as they have for everyone else. In the past, the band has often worked with outside producers and mixers. This time, they made “This Stupid World” all by themselves. And their time-tested judgment is both sturdy enough to keep things to the band’s high standards and nimble enough to make things new.
Doors open 6:00pm | Show 7:00pm
