Yo La Tengo private showcase for Pitchfork

In February 2018, we hosted a private event with the band Yo La Tengo for an intimate Pitchfork video showcase, debuting songs from their upcoming album There’s a Riot Going On. The event received a write-up in the New Yorker, describing National Sawdust as an “intimate, otherworldly space” with “white-panelled walls with jaggedly geometric black laces, ceiling and floor repeating the pattern, the mood of a kind of avant-garde hive.”
