A year and a half after their latest release—2009's quietly revered Popular Songs—Yo La Tengo hits the road with a winning gimmick: a two-tiered show whose first chunk will be decided by the spinning of a modified chore wheel (among the options the band must be prepared to execute: comedy skits, audience Q&A, performances as their garage-rock alter egos the Condo Fucks). The second chunk of the show features a set of classic songs spanning the band's 27-year, 12-album career. DAVID SCHMADER
