Jason Koffman Sings With Yo La Tengo
You may know Minneapolis resident Jason Koffman from his job as one of the movers and shakers over at prime Minneapolis venue Cedar Cultural Center. You may even remember him for his Reviler contribution to the review of the recent Here We Go Magic review. Jason recently traveled to Hoboken to go to some of Yo La Tengo’s legendary Hanukkah shows. Jason didn’t just go as a spectator though – he won the chance to lead a tune onstage with the band, which was videotaped and later posted over on Pitchfork! Koffman chose to sing a cover of jonathan Richman’s “Astral Plane,” as as you can see from the video below, he absolutely slays it. Kudos to Jason – it couldn’t have happened to a better dude, or a bigger YLT fan for that matter (dude even wears the same shoes as Ira Kaplan).
