Almost always during their annual Hanukkah run shows, Yo La Tengo are joined by a special guest for at least a part of their set. Night 2 of the 2023 run, though, it was just Ira, Georgia and James. No guests needed, either, as Ira pulled out all the guitar heroics for a set that included “Ohm,” “Let’s Save Tony Orlando’s House,” “Stockholm Syndrome,” a cover of Bob Dylan’s “I Threw it All Away,” and more.

There were of course, surprise guests to start the night. The FrogsJimmy Flemion opened the show, and he joined Yo La Tengo for the encore, where they performed The Frogs’ “Weird on the Avenue” and “Lord Grunge,” along with covers of T. Rex’s “Life’s a Gas,” and The Monkees’ “Tapioca Tundra.” The night ended with a rendition of John Lennon & Yoko Ono’s “Imagine,” where Flemion went into the crowd to sing and then exited stage right as the song ended.

Janeane Garofalo was the Night 2 comedian, the mix CD was made by Howie Rose, and proceeds from the night benefited Doctors Without Borders.

Check out photos by P Squared, along with the Night 2 setlist (via Jesse Jarnow), below.

Six more Hanukkah shows to go. Tickets are currently sold out, but the band often release some day-of show or during the week, and it’s worth checking back if you’re really trying to go.

Jimmy Flemion is playing another NYC show tonight (12/9) at Berlin Under A with Nik Westman of Central Plains.
