XPN Free At Noon With Yo La Tengo

XPN Free At Noon With Yo La Tengo

The free at noon series is a weekly broadcast held at The World Cafe, where both members and non-members of WXPN are invited to see live music for free. Being a member allows first access to events such like these. It’s as simple as receiving an email and RSVPing to the event. These intimate concerts take place every Friday from noon to 1pm. Musicians that have graced the XPN stage include Buddy Guy, Arlo Guthrie, Carly Simon, the B-52’s, and many more. I often want to take advantage of such opportunities, as The World Cafe is just a short walk from Center City over the Walnut Street bridge, yet I don’t always have the time. Thanks to my group’s new coordinator, Sharon, who snatched tickets before it sold out, last week we were able to see a long time favorite band of mine, Yo La Tengo. This is a band that has made 14 records in the past 29 years, each one consistently good, if not great. Their short set of songs from the lighter side of their repertoire were evidence of how well they perform live. Each song was delivered with natural ease while still maintaining their tight harmonies and underlying tension of their guitar work . The new record, “Stuff like That There” is a mix of originals and covers. It features familiar songs such as, “Butchie’s Tune” by the Lovin’ Spoonful and “Friday I’m In Love” by The Cure,  Yo La Tengo played 8 songs to a full house, lasting just a little under an hour, making the concert fit perfectly into my lunch break.

Make the time, skip the salad, and let music feed your soul some Friday’s. Be sure to check out the Free at Noon calendar to find out about upcoming concerts. You can also see Yo La Tengo at the Keswick on September 24. It is certain to be a great show
