In 2001, interfaith indie-rock lifers Yo La Tengo began celebrating the Festival of Lights with a run of shows across the Hudson at Hoboken’s Maxwell’s. This year, from tonight through December 27, you can eat a kosher dinner while you watch the band join a secret list of performers that will “not be divulged until the last possible moment.” Past guests have included musicians (including Big Star and Sun Ra), comics (David Cross, Todd Barry, etc.), and even food critics (our own Robert Sietsema!) for eight of the year’s most intimate, enjoyable shows. Goys, of course, are more than welcome.
