Hanukkah & Xmas wishes from the Feelies

December 26th, 2012

Hanukkah 2012 - Night 3

The Feelies played live at Maxwell’s for the traditional Yo La Tengo’s Hanukkah celebration: night #3 (of 8) saw the band opening with a short but very intense show (see the tracklist).

“I said it last night, and I just may say it again tomorrow: Without the Feelies, I can’t really imagine our band being around today.  They wanted to contribute in some way to the recovery from Sandy, and really I have no words to describe how it felt to have them spend night three of Hanukkah with us.” wrote Ira on the YLT website.

Then Feelies members joined YLT on different tracks: Glenn on Time Fades Away (Neil Young) and Barnaby, Hardly Working; Dave & Stan on Tired Hippo, The Room Got Heavy, False Alarm, The Story of Jazz and Double Dare .

And the encores: Brenda sang You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere (Bob Dylan) backed by Bill on guitar and finally Bill & Glenn joined YLT for an epic 17 minutes version of Sister Ray (Velvet Underground). What a great way to send Hanukkah and Xmas wishes!!
