KM

is this particular show not getting archived?

gm

Apparently, they never archive the Yo La Tengo shows. I asked a few years back.

KM

Well, damn. I often rely on the archive for pseu's show since it's on in the middle of the night here in the UK. Was really looking forward to this one too.

Jeff Greer

Is there any chance you'll make the show available as a download? Maybe as a premium for contributors?

Treefon

The instrumental sounded like a rough cover of "caravan", a Duke Ellington standard

Ken Katkin

Yes, Ira Kaplan confirmed that Treefon is correct: the instrumental that kicked off the fourth set was indeed "Caravan." Thanks also to Jeff Tartakov for identifying "Blue Line Swinger" in the fifth set. (I am deeply embarrassed that I failed to identify that Yo La Tengo original myself). Ira K also kindly disclosed that in the second set, "Indian Giver" was performed in medley with "Second Hand News." Finally, Ira also filled me in on some of the references in the closing medley that I didn't catch, although he thinks there were still more that he can't remember. Any help in further perfecting this list would be gratefully accepted.
