This week WXPN presents a live concert featuring New Jersey indie rock act Yo La Tengo. The trio's 1986 debut "Ride The Tiger" pushed boundaries, bridging the genre barriers between noise rock and shoegaze. Formed originally as a husband/wife duo between Ira Kaplan and Georgia Hubley, and is now filled out by bassist James McNew. They are gearing up to release their upcoming album "Stuff Like That There" August 28th, and if you can't make this Free at Noon, Yo La Tengo will be performing at the Keswick Theater on September 24th. You can hear the show on the air at 88.5 or you can see it in person by RSVP'ing below.
