They killed it!
One of my favs, I loved the dance routine. Mr. Tough, Autumn Sweater, and the jam at the end was crazy too. They definitely rose to the occasion.
Agreed! That was the best set I could possibly ever seen them do in under an hour! It was practically a greatest hits set, and then they closed with a 15 minute version of the song that originally turned me on to them and is still one of my all time favorites. It was tied for my favorite of the whole weekend with LCD Soundsystem. Just perfect.
Fucking ruled. AND I was right up front. Why was no one at this??? Magical.
Loved this set. After walking away from the bland Club 75, Yo La Tengo was just right.
One of many excellent Sunday sets.
not their best set but it's always enjoyable to watch these guys play live. besides i'm always afraid they''ll play sudden organ and me not being there.
You Can Have It All is to me what Sudden Organ is to you, so I was quite pleased!
I think I just have too much emotionally invested in this band, but when they played You can have it all I cried. They started off a little slow, and I wish they wouldn't always play autumn sweater(seen them perform it 8 times now), but overall it was an amazing set.
Theirs was one of my favorite sets of the weekend. When they started "Pass the Hatchet.." with almost 20 minutes left to their set, I got ecstatic, because I knew it was their last song.
I agree, this was in my top 4 of the weekend. Anybody happen to jot down the setlist?
Fui quod es, eris quod sum. I once was what you are, you will be what I am - epitaph carved on Roman gravestones.
I also got teary-eyed during, shit, quite a few of their songs. And that rarely happens to me while watching live music... but "You Can Have It All", "Big Day Coming" and "Pass the Hatchet" just did it for me... and my heart was just racing during "Sugarcube," ridiculous as that is.
I remember seeing them at Treasure Island and being severely disappointed. My friend encouraged me to come watch with and they fucking brought it. YLT into Jonsi really made the afternoon.

I've probably seen them 10-15 times over the years and they weren't at their best. I don't know if was production or what but something was off and it was a bummer.
here's a bad video that I took of "You Can Have It All" on the off-chance that they were about to cover a Sly and the Family Stone song based on the intro's banter:
*based upon tedious fact checking.
I was a bit underwhelmed, but Waterslide was epic.
Just Say No to eurotrash nonsense. Rock n' roll will set you free.
