I am not much of a concert reviewer, so if you're looking for a review of the show, I'd suggest heading over to the Riverfront Times and checking out Ryan Wasoba's fine review of the show. I prefer, instead, to focus my efforts on taping and luckily, thanks to the Yo La Tengo camp and fellow taper Chris (aka yltfan), I was able to secure permission to both tape and share out the show. As such, Speakers in Code is happy to present YLT's set from the Pageant, in its entirety, in both lossy MP3 and lossless FLAC formats for your enjoyment.
Many thanks to all involved for making it an extremely special night.
