Cory went to see Yo La Tengo in Tampa and came back with some photos and this to say, "They played a wonderful set of old and new stuff. BEAUTIFUL!!!"

I'm also including my personal favorite YLT song ever. It's 10 minutes of beauty that will remind you of old, great Broken Social Scene. I throw this on in the morning to wake up and get motivated, at night to relax and throughout the day because it's so damn good.

Broken Social Scene PhotographsBroken Social Scene Photographs

St. Petersburg, FL - Our resident photographer Alex McKnight shot the November 2nd concert at Jannus Landing where Broken Social Scene and Do Make Say Think brought their Canadian love to Florida. His report:

Loved the casual nature of the seemed to pass onto security. someone apparently started some BS about only letting photographers shoot during the first three songs! like really, and we are supposed to put down our cameras when the band finally warms up! anyway, at this show, I was able to shoot during all but the encore. Thanks, burly security guy!
