There are a few reasons why The A.V. Club might report on the news, relayed to us by Pitchfork, that Yo La Tengo is going on tour. The band came to our office for an Undercover set once, after all. We also reviewed its latest album, which this particular tour is intended to support. We’ve even got some jokes about cardigans covered in cat hair that seemed appropriate for the situation. But really, we secretly wanted to remind you all of this Onion headline from 2002:

37 Record-Store Clerks Feared Dead In Yo La Tengo Concert Disaster

Man, that story’s funny. Anyway, the tour begins tonight in Boulder, Colorado and stretches into next April, with dates in the U.S., Canada, and Japan. Yo La Tengo will also appear on Last Call With Carson Daly this Wednesday, November 11, so get your afghans and mugs of tea ready, YLT fans.
