Few American rock bands have been as consistently great and delightfully eclectic as Yo La Tengo. The three-piece outfit from Hoboken, New Jersey is still going strong after almost 30 years. The group's catchy pop melodies suit the soundtracks of big-hearted indie films as seamlessly as the feedback-drenched atmospherics fill your favorite rock club. Tue 8:30 p.m.
