What’s the deal with indie rock’s newfound comedy obsession? Yesterday, we saw everyone from Bill Hader to Julie Klausner in a New Pornographers video. Now, Stereogum brings us a delightful video of Yo La Tengo acting an out an episode of Seinfeld. On its current tour, the band has created a wheel that an audience member is invited to spin; whatever option the wheel lands on, Yo La Tengo has to do. The Seinfeld category was called “Sitcom Theater.” Watch ten minutes of the full-band reading — in which Ira Kaplan does a surprisingly convincing Jerry — after the jump.
Readers in Los Angeles, take your turn on the wheel of delight when Yo La Tengo comes to the El Rey February 23rd. Click here for details and to buy tickets.
