American indie rockers Yo La Tango headline SWG3 Galvanizers on Tuesday 27 August 2024.
In many respects, Yo La Tengo are the quintessential indie rock band, melding elemental, often noisy guitar work against melodies infused with an understated sweetness that made even their noisiest freakouts feel accessible and their extended jams compelling in their exploration. The group's members were musical omnivores whose range of interests were vast: The Kinks, The Velvet Underground, and My Bloody Valentine, have all been cited as among their key influences. With an admirably diverse and vast back catalogue, encompassing warm acoustic interpretive albums, as well as ultra-crude garage rock, YLT's mix of cheerful skronk, melodic engagement, and knack for songwriting has helped millions of fans across the globe become drawn to the group.
This event is strictly 14+. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult aged 18 or over. One adult can attend with a maximum of two Under 16s.
The Galvanizers can be accessed via a small set of stairs, platform lift or ramp. Accessible toilets are available in all ground floor level bars servicing this space.
