Yo La Tengo Announces Wheel of Fortune-esque Tour

Text

For its latest tour, Yo La Tengo will bring along a giant wheel to determine which set audiences will get.

The shows will be split into two 45-minute sets, and whatever the wheel lands on on a given night will determine the first set performed. Possibilities include “Songs Starting with the Letter S” or “Sitcom Theater,” in which the band and crew act out a classic sitcom. Check out a full list of ridiculous categories here.

The band will also be selling tickets to the shows at face value at local independent record stores. Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Nov. 5. Dates below.
