Even cooler than the sea horse soundtrack

Posted By on Fri, Mar 4, 2011 at 8:00 AM

Yo La Tango made a few new fans — and re-energized those already among the faithful — when it performed a live score to Jean Painlevé's science films last month at the Wilma. But that show has nothing on the band's next trick.

This evening, YLT will enter WFMU's Jersey City studio and play listener requests for three hours in exchange for pledges to the listener-supported station. These aren't just any requests, either. Fans take great pride in trying to stump the veteran band with obscure and eclectic choices. Last year, for example, YLT played everything from the Stooges (“T.V. Eye”) to the Grateful Dead (“Ripple”), Neil Young (“Cinnamon Girl”) to Chic (“Le Freak”).

It should be fun, and you can hear it all online. If you happen to make a donation, that's cool, too, because WFMU is currently the longest running free-form radio station in the United States. Here's the skinny:

Who: Yo La Tengo
Where: WFMU, on Pseu Braun's show
When: Friday, March 4, 7 - 10 PM (or 9 - midnight EST)
How: Find live audio streams at the station's website.

One note: The set will not be archived, so you have to catch it live.
