Som opvarmning til deres koncert på Badesøen Festival dagen efter, får vi besøg af ægteparret Georgia Hubley og Ira Kaplan, som dannede legendariske Yo La Tengo helt tilbage i 1984.

Alene historien bag navnet (sakset fra Wikipedia):

They chose the name "Yo La Tengo" (Spanish for "I have it"; or referring to a female-gender object or person, also "I've Got Her") in an effort to avoid any connotations in English. The name came from a baseball anecdote. During the 1962 season, New York Mets center fielder Richie Ashburn and Venezuelan shortstop Elio Chacón found themselves colliding in the outfield. When Ashburn went for a catch, he would scream, "I got it! I got it!" only to run into Chacón, who spoke only Spanish. Ashburn learned to yell, "¡Yo la tengo! ¡Yo la tengo!" instead. In a later game, Ashburn happily saw Chacón backing off. He relaxed, positioned himself to catch the ball, and was instead run over by left fielder Frank Thomas, who understood no Spanish and had missed a team meeting that proposed using the words "¡Yo la tengo!" as a way to avoid outfield collisions. After getting up, Thomas asked Ashburn, "What the hell is a Yellow Tango?

Der er gratis adgang og kolde øl fra kl. 18.30.

Arrangementet vil foregå på engelsk.
