The Story of Yo La Tengo
Here’s a little “slow Saturday” video for you to watch.
Ira Kaplan, of Hoboken’s most well-known band Yo La Tengo interviews Ed Kranepool about the band’s name.
If you actually lived in Hoboken (like 411 does), you’ll surely know that most of the video’s intro was NOT filmed in Hoboken (other than a brief Pier A part towards the end). Yo La Tengo said that it was filmed at a ball field at East River Park in Manhattan (since when did Hoboken have bridges like that?)
Enjoy your Saturday. Get out a bit! Stock up on snacks and supplies for next weeks big Super Bowl game!
